If you try to build a containerised Web scraping tool using Python, Selenium and Beautiful Soup on Apple M1 Pro, you might encounter the following issue while building the Dockerfile:

=> [ 3/11] COPY . /app                                                                                                  0.0s
 => [ 4/11] RUN wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add -                       0.9s
 => [ 5/11] RUN sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.  0.2s
 => ERROR [ 6/11] RUN apt-get update -qqy --no-install-recommends && apt-get install -qqy --no-install-recommends googl  3.6s
------
 > [ 6/11] RUN apt-get update -qqy --no-install-recommends && apt-get install -qqy --no-install-recommends google-chrome-stable:
#10 3.592 E: Unable to locate package google-chrome-stable
------
executor failed running [/bin/sh -c apt-get update -qqy --no-install-recommends && apt-get install -qqy --no-install-recommends google-chrome-stable]: exit code: 100

Assuming that you are using the traditional Dockerfile that reads:

FROM python:3.9

ENV PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE=1
ENV PYTHONUNBUFFERED=1


RUN wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add -
RUN sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
RUN apt-get update -qqy --no-install-recommends && apt-get install -qqy --no-install-recommends google-chrome-stable

RUN pip install --no-cache-dir --upgrade pip
WORKDIR /app
COPY ./requirements.txt /app/requirements.txt
RUN pip3 install --no-cache-dir -r requirements.txt
COPY . .
CMD tail -f /dev/null
CMD python3 scraper.py

To fix this issue, just modify the first line of the Dockerfile and add --platform=linux/amd64 entry.

FROM --platform=linux/amd64  python:3.9

Now you should be able to build the Docker image successfully
