[Pkg-postgresql-public] postgresql multiarch problems

I have a problem with postgresql packages from apt.postgresql.org on 
Ubuntu 14.04. Hope that this is the right maintainer address.

The problem is that I need to run i386 postgresql-9.2 on a amd64 machine 
(because I updated from 32bit to 64bit and only made a filesystem 
backup). Installing postgresql-9.2:i386 fails because it depends on 
postgresql-common and postgresql-client-common. aptitude, apt-get, and 
dpkg all claim that postgresql-(client-)common are not available for 
i386 even though the package is architecture-independent. I do not 
understand this. All other i386 dependencies can be installed easily.

I am not on the email list, any messages to me must go to the sender.

Best wishes,
