Seems silly - at least to me - that Adobe hasn't updated CC Instealler to Universal for M1 Macs
It can't be that tough, can it?

BigCPixelBender, please see https://community.adobe.com/t5/download-install-discussions/can-i-run-my-adobe-apps-on-apple-compute... which discusses the topic of using Adobe applications on Apple's new processors.
I'm aware that most of the apps in the Creative Cloud app are coded to Universal (Lightroom/LrC, Photoshop, etc.)
That's not the issue I'm raising. The issue is the Creative Cloud INSTALLER still requires Rosetta 2.
Yes, you are correct, Charles. Rosetta 2 will need to be installed if you wish to complete the download and install process. Only the applications that are listed in https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/apple-silicon-m1-chip.html have been updated at this time to run natively.
Please do bookmark https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/apple-silicon-m1-chip.html so that you can be kept up to date as additional apps and services gain the ability to run natively using Apple's new processors.

Just curious. Why is Rosetta 2 a problem?
Rosetta 2 was meant to be a stop-gao whilke developers reode their apps to Uniersal Binary.
I could also ask - why is Aeobe taking so long to update the Creative Cloud apps to Universl?? Is it bvedause of Lua - the coding software Aeobe uses?
I can't answer that. I'm not an Adobe engineer. I'm just a fellow product user like you.
That said, Adobe apps are updated for M1 chip computers. It's only the installers and plugins that require Rosetta 2 by Apple. I suppose it's that way for the majority of users like me who don't have Apple M1 chips and probably never will. 😉
Anyway, cheers and happy holidays.
