Bug Description

google-chrome-stable 14.0.835.202-r103287, Ubuntu Software Center

1. Download the Chrome "64 bit .deb" at <>.
2. On a 64-bit Ubuntu installation, open the .deb.
3. In USC, click "Install".

What happens:
2. Ubuntu Software Center opens to a screen that shows:
    - the icon for something that is already installed, when it isn't
    - an "Install" button
    - the error message, "Wrong architecture 'amd64'".
3. The "Install" button becomes insensitive, but nothing else happens.

What should happen:
2. Chrome appears not installed and installable.
3. Chrome is installed.

For different errors when trying to install Chrome, see bug 868188, bug 696282, and bug 869683.
