Following 9 months of [deprecation period][1], support for the i686
architecture effectively ends today. By the end of November, i686
packages will be removed from our mirrors and later from the packages

For users unable to upgrade their hardware to x86_64, an alternative is
a community maintained fork named [Arch Linux 32][2]. See their website
for details on migrating existing installations.
