Error installing libgtk2.0-0 on Xubuntu 19.10 64-bit

I’m trying to install BricsCAD v13 for 64-bit on Xubuntu 16.04, however it has several unresolved 32-bit dependencies. I was able to solve them all except libgtk2.0-0:i386.

In order to install it, I first run the following command to dispose of the 32-bit packages:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt-get update

Then I try to install the package with the following command:

sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

But the terminal returns the following error:

Reading package lists... Done

The following additional packages will be installed:
  libatk1.0-0:i386 libgail-common:i386 libgail18:i386

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I know how to get back to normal so that the package system is correct again. But I would like to be able to install the 32-bit version of said package to be able to install BricsCAD v13, but it seems that the system conflicts with having the same package in both architectures.

Thanks for your help
