Bug Description

root@music:~/media/midi-files# sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package ia32-libs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  lib32ncurses5 lib32z1

E: Package 'ia32-libs' has no installation candidate
root@music:~/media/midi-files# sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses5 lib32z1
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
lib32ncurses5 is already the newest version (6.0+20160213-1ubuntu1).
lib32z1 is already the newest version (1:1.2.8.dfsg-2ubuntu4).
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 guitarpro6:i386 : Depends: gksu:i386 but it is not going to be installed
                   Depends: libportaudio0:i386 but it is not installable
                   Depends: libportaudio2:i386 but it is not going to be installed
                   Depends: libssl0.9.8:i386 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

You have asked that the sudo package be removed,
but no root password has been set.
Without sudo, you may not be able to gain administrative privileges.

If you would prefer to access the root account with su(1)
or by logging in directly,
you must set a root password with "sudo passwd".

If you have arranged other means to access the root account,
and you are sure this is what you want,
you may bypass this check by setting an environment variable
(export SUDO_FORCE_REMOVE=yes).

Refusing to remove sudo.
