Perhaps in the newer version, Synaptic is unable to differentiate between i386 and amd64 versions. This is what shows on my machine:
Code: Select all
$ apt policy 0ad
0ad:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.0.21-2
  Version table:
     0.0.21-2 500
        500 http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
$ apt policy 0ad-data
0ad-data:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.0.21-1
  Version table:
     0.0.21-1 500
        500 http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian unstable/main i386 Packages


It shows i386 version too because I've added i386 architecture in my machine (needed some i386 packages). But strangely enough it doesn't have the i386 version of 0ad... but I think that's another problem.

I booted up a VM running Stretch AMD64. Synaptic is not showing any duplicates. So I added the i386 architecture and updated. And ... ah, there they are.
