Reason for the Error

    If you have a Mac with an M1/M2 chip, and you downloaded the Arch64 package from eclipse.org to install Eclipse IDE, extracting eclipse-java-2021-12-M1-linux-gtk-aarch64.tar and running the eclipse file will give the above error because, the setup is not meant for M1/M2 Mac but for Linux.
