From Arch news

https://www.archlinux.org/news/phasing-out-i686-support/

https://www.archlinux.org/news/the-end-of-i686-support/

Due to the decreasing popularity of i686 among the developers and the community, we have decided to phase out the support of this architecture.

The [multilib] repository is not affected.

For users unable to upgrade their hardware to x86_64, an alternative is a community maintained fork named Arch Linux 32. See their website for details on migrating existing installations.

The ISO will install and you will be able to get updates, see link provided by realmain
