Try `sudo apt install mudlet` - that would get you an older version but it would be 32bit.

You should be able to build the current Mudlet from source code in Ubuntu using a 32-bit machine however you will have to use the system provided Qt development (qmake qt project file processor/Qt Creator IDE) tools as Qt themselves no longer compile and publish a 32bit x86 SDK to provide these...

... FTR The Mudlet Windows builds are currently 32-bit (though we are thinking about a switch to 64-bits there as well) so the codebase is fine with that bitness - except for humongous (millions of rooms) maps that can push the memory over the 3.5GB system limit or even a lesser value that starts to cause the OS to thrash its swap memory!

You will want to set the environmental variable with_updater to the value "NO" before you run qmake to keep out some code that will not be useful for you; and forget about the Discord integration as that requires 64 bits on Linux OS platforms.
