Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine is end-of-life and not supported anymore, so you should not use it.
After making proper backups, use "do-release-upgrade" to upgrade your system to Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa. Luckily, 20.04 is an LTS (Long Term Support) release, so it's still supported today and you don't need to run subsequent release upgrades to get a supported version (as it would be necessary if you had 18.10, for example).

Many releases ago, I think like in 2016 with Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, the apt-get command was changed to apt. The change is rooted in Debian, Ubuntu only inherited it. Though the apt-get command still works, it's recommended to be used in scripts. The change is favorable because it makes APT simpler, e.g. commands of apt-cache are also available under apt, so you don't need to remember what operations are done with apt-get or apt-cache.

As DJEarthQuake has pointed it out, the multiverse repository needs to be enabled, as steamcmd belongs to multiverse:

You also need the i386 (32-bit) architecture enabled on amd64 (64-bit) systems, because sadly SteamCMD and HLDS still don't have 64-bit builds so you need to use the 32-bit compatibility layer.

If still doesn't work:
  1. Check if the executable file the script wants to invoke exists (ls -l /root/SteamCMD/linux32/steamcmd).
  2. Check that it has executable permission (you should see the x characters in the permission flags, e.g. rwxr-x---, and obviously run as a user that has access to the file).
  3. Check that you have the required libraries to run it (ldd /root/SteamCMD/linux32/steamcmd). If you have libraries missing, you might need to install additional packages.
Also, NEVER run SteamCMD or HLDS as root (unless you have a solid excuse, for example it's confined in a container).

try :
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 -y
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386
sudo apt-get install -f
