The Admin Console now supports creating packages for Apple Silicon. You can specify the platform while creating packages. For more information, see Creating Packages.

You need to be posting this in the Enterprise & Teams forum.

I am moving this conversation to that forum space.

 

Best of luck to you.

Can you fix it? I cannot too. If I want to install with .pkg files, I would get an error which is "This software can't be installed"

You need to wait until those machines are supported. Some Adobe products do work, but don't ask when the other will work. Adobe, I'm sure, tries it's best, but some things can't be rushed. It was probably easier when Windows and MacOS where on the same CPU.

I don't understand. Isn't Adobe support installation with .pkg files on Macbook M1 (Silicon) products? I just want to learn whether I can install Adobe CC with .pkg format on my Macbook M1? 

 

I don't care if these programs will run with Rosetta 2 emulation. But I don't install with .pkg format

Update: The Admin Console now supports additional platform options while creating packages. The solution/article provided in this post is no longer valid and has been unpublished.

--

The packages as downloaded from Admin Console are not compatible on Apple M1 machines. There is a small workaround that you need to perform to make the packages compatible: https://helpx.adobe.com/enterprise/kb/deploy-packages-to-arm-devices.html

 

We'll be making an update and will make M1 packages compatible. Till that time, please follow the steps in the article to install the packages.

I choose Apple Silicon but I don't get the native (16.3.x) version of InDesign as an option. It's only displaying InDesign 16.2.1.

Doing this on an M1 Mac Mini. I can get InDesign 16.3.x if I do a standalone install of the CC Control panel but I need to make a package for multiple M1 Macs. Is there any reason I can't see InDesign 16.3.x through the CC Packager?
