Binary installer thinks my Raspberry is 32 bit but it is 64 bit

I am a long term Calibre user on a Mac. I am trying to install it on a Raspberry 4B with aarch64 (64 bit) operating system. When I run the command as indicated by the Calibre install page for Linux systems:

sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin

it reports that the system is 32 bit and the calibre installer will only run of 64 bit systems.

Definitely not true. It is a 64 bit system. Don't know where to go from here

You are running a python that thinks your system is 32bit, which is why the installer thinks its a 32 bit system. Fix that and you should be fine.

python -c 'import platform; print(platform.architecture())'
