SQLite 3.34 binary not working on Ubuntu 20.04 (not found)
Yes, now I checked and found

$ file sqlite3
sqlite3: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/ld-linux.so.2, for GNU/Linux 4.3.0, stripped

I wonder why

  *  a 32 bit executable is provided as *the* Linux version, while most distributions aren't even available in 32 bit versions,
  *  why the system doesn't give a proper message saying that a 32 bit executable cannot be run on the current system.
