Illegal instruction when starting PMS on fresh Raspbian on RPi 2 B+

I've installed PMS on fresh instal of Raspbian stretch on Raspberry Pi 2 B+ using instructions from this forum:?
http://forums.plex.tv/discussion/309553/plex-media-server-for-armhf-and-arm64-using-debian-or-ubuntu

After reboot service would not start.

$ sudo service plexmediaserver status | cat

To see actual error I've looked into /lib/systemd/system/plexmediaserver.service and tried to run it myself:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/plexmediaserver /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex\ Media\ Server
Illegal instruction

Has anyone else experienced this?

    It's not a Raspberry Pi 2 B+ but either a Pi 1 B+ or a Pi Zero or something like that. It's a armv6 device (take a look at uname -a for example). It does not support the armv7 Plex build and there is no armv6 build available. If you like please post a picture of your Pi and we can tell you what it is :)
