Selecting an incorrect package may also result in system instability and boot up issues, so selecting a right package relates to knowing the ARM version/CPU architecture.
CPU architecture directly represents on which version of cores your processor is built. Most of the well-known processor brands Snapdragon, MediaTek, Exynos, and Kirin built their processor using latest ARM architecture.
