I have tried installing wine-5.0-rc1-arm.apk and am having trouble, so will have to revisit at a later time.

I think this is what I am running into:

Not all is lost for those with ARM devices. There is an ARM version of the APK, but it will only support running software that was originally made for the ARM-based Windows RT. Work is also being done to incorporate the work of another open-source project (QEMU) which virtualizes CPUs, similar to how a virtual machine works, to allow x86 software to run on ARM. This is a future goal, since Wine on Android is still very much experimental.
