The problem does not occur on a 32bits-only installation.

Maybe that old bug is relative https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-
bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=633825 ?

  Duplicate package entries shown when listing by package origin

Status in apt-xapian-index package in Ubuntu:
Status in synaptic package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Synaptic  0.83 (also was in 0.82.5 I believe)

  - Ubuntu Xenial

  What should happen:

  Synaptic should as previously show a single item for each package when
  viewing package list from a particular 'origin'.

  What does happen:

  For many packages up to 4 identical entries are shown for each
  package. See attached screencap.

  Duplicate list items are quite literally identical and are true
  duplicates as they relate to the identical package in all respects,
  including full version. In fact, so much so, that selecting one of a
  duplicate for an operation such as install/upgrade/remove etc selects
  and then operates on all the duplicate entries as well.

  Same problem has been noted on a real machine and in VM running
  variants of Xenial - Xubuntu/Kubuntu etc, with or with any ppas
  present on system.
