Sorry to reiterate this point, and I apologise if it seems obvious to
you, but just to be clear, I'm wondering how long ago you installed
the multilib packages and if you check for updates?

It's a good idea to do an rysnc of the multilib server from
time-to-time to check if there have been any updates.

Boston State House is the hub of the Solar System.  You couldn't pry
that out of a Boston man if you had the tire of all creation
