I set up a arm64 chroot named via this command:

sudo mmdebstrap --architectures=arm64 buster myArm64Machine

entered said chroot with command below:

sudo chroot gnome-core-arm64 myArm64Machine

one of output lines was this error:

> I: arm64 cannot be executed, falling back to qemu-user

Why this error occured and how can I solve it?


The “I:” at the start of the line indicates that it’s not an error, it’s an informative message. The system is informing you that, because arm64 binaries can’t be executed natively, it’s using QEMU.
