I was not able to convince sbuild to build both 32 and 64 bit packages. 
Now I have a broken package manager that does not let me install new 
packages anymore. Trying to downgrade the 64 to the version 1ubuntu1 
gives strange errors:

Preparing to replace libglib2.0-0:amd64 2.34.1-1ubuntu2 (using 
.../libglib2.0-0_2.34.1-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libglib2.0-0:amd64 ...
dpkg: error processing 
/var/cache/apt/archives/libglib2.0-0_2.34.1-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb (--unpack):
  trying to overwrite shared 
'/usr/share/doc/libglib2.0-0/changelog.Debian.gz', which is different 
from other instances of package libglib2.0-0:amd64
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

How can I fix that and get back to a working state.
