You might want to head over to the Parrot Community Forum and ask them.

Likely, completely, depending on if an End of Life date is set*.

This from when Parrot 4.5 was released in 2019

Lorenzo Faletra has announced the release of Parrot 4.5, the latest stable version of the project's specialist distribution designed for penetration testing, digital forensics and privacy protection, based on Debian's "Testing" branch: "Parrot 4.5 is officially released and there are some major changes under the hood. We are in 2019 now, and computers that are not capable of running 64-bit operating system are mostly legacy computers that are not capable of running modern and complex applications. Additionally, many programs and frameworks are no longer available for 32-bit x86 systems. We have been releasing 32-bit images since the beginning of the project and we worked hard to provide fresh binary updates for the i386 architecture for a while, but nowadays 32-bit-only computers are no longer capable of running a full pentest campaign or providing hardware-accelerated support to our security protection systems. Parrot 4.5 no longer provides live ISO files for the i386 architecture."
* You would need to check for this with Parrot itself, as Alex has suggested.

So you may have to look for an alternative to Parrot which still supports 32-bit. Or else upgrade you computer.

Kali still supports 32-bit.

Good luck
