The OP mentioned 16.04, so installing gdebi makes no sense, but it's
important to run 'apt update' first, even to install and before using

IOW don't install gdebi, but after wget run 'apt update' and 'apt install',
since apt resolves dependencies as well as gdebi does, just don't add
'--dry-run' as I did. Note, I doubt there's a 32-bit version available,
so 'uname -m' must output 'x86_64'.
