Installing Elixir/Erlang on arm64 from scaleway

I am getting the following error after wget https://packages.erlang-solutions.com/erlang-solutions_1.0_all.deb && sudo dpkg -i erlang-solutions_1.0_all.deb and apt update

N: Skipping acquire of configured file ‘contrib/binary-arm64/Packages’ as repository ‘http://binaries.erlang-solutions.com/debian xenial InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture ‘arm64’

Is there any workaround for this besides using X86? I saw that the erlang (!= esl-erlang) package is available for arm64 (source).

I’m running on scaleway arm64, installed using https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf - install erlang and then elixir, works great.

if you install nodejs using asdf note this PR https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf-nodejs/pull/41 - you can easily add that in your asdf plugin.

Cool, thank you! I’ll include that in my ansible play.
