If you configured radvd or dhcpv6 - double-check your setup. You did it
wrong.
If you don't, but used "iface ??? inet6" stanzas in
/etc/network/interfaces - remove them.
If you use NetworkManager, so some other nonsense - convince it not no
configure IPv6 for you, or stop using them.
If anything else fails, try this:

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1

Thanks for the detailed reply.

I used the installer defaults to configure the network interface.
"Installer defaults" is a very broad term, and the contents of your
installation can differ dramatically depending on the type of install
media used.
Besides it's really been awhile since I used Debian Installer CD1. I
prefer d-i over TFTP these days. More flexibility, less cruft this way.


Here are the contents of /etc/network/interfaces:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

and /etc/networks/interfaces.d is empty.
And that means you're using NetworkManager, wicd, systemd-networkd,
connman or whatever they put in there by default. Not the conventional
ifupdown.


It would seem that there is another problem:  dpkg --add-architecture i386
(as root) no longer seems to work, although it did when I ran it yesterday
after reinstalling the OS.
To my best knowledge this particular invocation of dpkg does not involve
network communication in any way. Therefore it's a different problem.


However I just ran

sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1, as per your suggestion and got:


root@AbNormal:/home/comp# sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1

And that, ladies and gentlemen, shows us two things.
First one being - you IPv4 settings are working.
Second - those corporate drones at Opera are unable to setup a proper
Debian repository.


Then I ran apt update and got:

root@AbNormal:/home/comp#

Now, I'm really confused>
That's expected. Apt discarded faulty Opera repository and found 26
proper Debian packages to update.


Any further help in resolving this problem, will reallly be appreciated!
I count three problems:

1) "dpkg --add-architecture i386" does not work.

2) Your IPv6 setup is broken.

3) You want to use Opera repository, but are unable to do so.

Which one will be the first?

I don't want the Opera repository, where is it? The only reason I have it is so that my wife can browse. Here is my sources.list:

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20171209-12:11]/ stretch contrib main

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 9.3.0 _Stretch_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20171209-12:11]/ stretch main contrib

deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security/ stretch/updates main contrib non-free

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://debian.uchicago.edu/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free

I definitely want the other two problems to be solved.

 I have some computational chemistry software that needs i386 libraries.

Your help is really appreciated.
