0009:err:module:load_so_dll failed to load .so lib "/home/morpheus/.local/share/lutris/runners/wine/lutris-5.6-2-x86_64/bin/../lib/wine/": wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
0009:err:module:import_dll Loading library WLDAP32.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Epic Games\\Launcher\\Portal\\Binaries\\Win32\\EpicGamesLauncher.exe") failed (error c000007a).

sudo dnf install openldap.i686

Out of the box we don’t have 16-bit LDAP libraries installed in Fedora 32, which we need to launch the Epic Games store (and other 16-bit applications). Installing the above package resolves the problem.

Thanks to this post for Manjaro which put me on the right track.
