Note on Raspbian: The package repository does not offer 32-bit ARM
architecture (armhf) images. You should build Tor from source.

From "Why and how I can enable Tor Package Repository in Debian?" page[1]:

Verify your operating system is capable of running the binary by
inspecting the output of the following commend:

  # dpkg --print-architecture

It should output either amd64, arm64, or i386. The repository does not
support other CPU architectures.

For tor armhf package, please see this open issue:

But, if you're on a dynamic IP/residential connection and have a Raspberry
Pi, I would recommend running a Snowflake standalone proxy.
