The same question was already answered today. Detailed information, IOW
what commands to run, is available by the archive.



FWIW Google dropped support for 32 bit architecture, so the DEB package
is only available for 64 bit architecture.

First run

  uname -m

if the output shouldn't be 'x86_64', you can't use the provided package.
If it should be 'x86_64', then continue by changing to a download directory.

  cd /tmp/

Download the package

  wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Update the indexes, just in case the package should depend on other packages.

  sudo apt update

Then install the package

  sudo apt install ./google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

That's it.
