[URGENT] ARM64 Debian via Crostini (chromebook) won't work

  • any:
  • Debian (via Crostini) ARM64:
    I can’t install on my arm64 Samsung Chromebook plus. I need this working asap ( a few hours).
    Upon sudo apt-get update, I get a
    Failed to fetch https://deb.etcher.io/dists/1.5.17/etcher/binary-arm64/Packages 404 Not Found
    I have tried replacing the stable field in
    echo “deb https://deb.etcher.io stable etcher” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/balena-etcher.list
    with ‘beta’, and ‘1.5.17.’ I checked the changelog, and arm64 support was in fact added in 1.4. Is there anything I can do?


Hi @Adonnen welcome to the forums!

Although we’ve added support for arm64 within the application, we don’t provide packages which is why you’re getting a 404 error. If you wanted to compile the application from source for arm64 it should work OK though.
