RHEL 7 was released in 2014 without a 32-bit version so it'd be fairly
natural for Ubuntu 16.04 to follow suit.

I'm not involved in the development of Ubuntu Server but I'm sure that
those who are would find your enquiry more useful if you answered the
following two questions:

What are the advantages of 32-bit over 64-bit?

What are the disadvantages of 64-bit over 32-bit?
