What I would do is open a terminal and run:
$ sudo apt-get purge google-chrome-stable$ sudo apt-get autoremove
Then go to and download the 64 bit .deb (debian/ubuntu) version. Open your friend the terminal again.
$ sudo dpkg -i --force-depends ./Downloads/google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb$ sudo apt-get -f install 
Then you should be up and running with 64 bit chrome.

Upon loading Chrome I get a message that I will no longer get updates to Chrome, and to install the 64 bit version.  When I do so, Software Center opens and will not install the package.  
"Breaks existing package 'google chrome stable:i386' conflict: google chrome stable ()
I have not removed the 32 bit version.  Just wanted to check to see if that would be the thing to do.  I could not find any references to install problems so I imagine this would be fine.
Thanks for any advice
