Never mind the previous responses.

ia32-libs-multiarch is available only for i386, all libraries in ia32-libs are multiarch now making that package practically deprecated. What reason do you need this installed for?

In your chroot environment it is likely that dpkg is not using i386. This command will resolve that:
# dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update

This is not a bug in apt.
