I have been following this article to setup my env. I am running
command using iTerm w/ Rosetta. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Nizar, welcome! It looks like you're using Rosetta x86 emulation. For Pants 2.5+, that generally shouldn't be necessary from Pants's perspective, although some folks need Rosetta to run parts of their own codebase Is there are a particular reason you're trying to run this with
arch -x86_64
, rather than normal?
