No, you're on the wrong track here. The Debian package is indeed called
"wine32", and the WINEARCH is "win32".

This way you correctly instructed Wine to create a 32-bit prefix, and
indeed it gets set up that way. However it is not usable because you
don't have the needed 32-bit packages installed.
The solution is given in the commands output:

# dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update &&
# apt-get install wine32

Note that if you have wine64 and wine32 installed and don't specify
WINEARCH (I consider this the default), the created prefix will be able
to run both 32- and 64-bit applications (its arch is "win64", the setup
is called shared WoW64). It should also work if you first create the
prefix and then only after that install wine32.

Unknown WINEARCH gets silently ignored by Wine, so you created a 64-bit
prefix here. Now install wine32 and it should just work.

So everything is correct, you just need to do what you see in the
output. I still asked upstream to explicitly check the WINEARCH setting.
