I tried to install Edge using the command line instructions, and also by double clicking on a downloaded debian installer package, and both installs failed. This is using a Raspberry Pi 400 running the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS, which I believe is based on Debian. The command line install gave an error saying "Unable to locate package microsoft-edge-dev".
Any ideas what the issue may be?

I've seen this happen multiple times, please if you don't know about a subject and don't have anything useful to add, you don't need to comment.

@HotCakeX This article talks about Win10 ARM. Neither about Linux on ARM nor Mac on M1 (ARM).
Google Chrome for example supports M1 starting with 87.0.4280.67 (https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/2020/11/stable-channel-update-for-desktop_17.html)

Edge M1 chip support coming soon
for Edge ARM SoC support (if it's entirely not available), it's best to send feedback through Edge feedback button. the way it works is that the more people ask for a feature, the higher priority that feature request will have for Edge developers.

@Johannes Goerlich I suspect this is correct. I don't think the Edge version is arm,

@HotCakeX Hope this will become available soon,
While the DEV version works on Ubuntu, the install on Raspberry Pi returns „Paket microsoft-edge-dev kann nicht gefunden werden.“ (package ... can’t be found) and the RasPi community is really also waiting for MS Edge, as you can read here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=288865

I did provide feedback as suggested to the Edge team. Didn't hear anything back so I assume this is not in the plans right now.

@formula155 "I did provide feedback as suggested to the Edge team. Didn't hear anything back so I assume this is not in the plans right now."
I suspect that you are right.
Microsoft Edge supports Edge on Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE distros, the same distros for which Microsoft supports WSL. If Microsoft has plans to support additional distros in the future, Microsoft has not announced those plans. I did listen to a podcast a month or so ago in which a Microsoft spox said that Microsoft may extend support to additional distros after Stable is released, but "may" doesn't mean "will". Microsoft has announced that Microsoft will support Edge on Apple's M1 SoC, but has not said anything (to my knowledge) about support for Linux on Broadcom's BCM-series SoC.
So far, Microsoft's embrace of Edge-Linux (and WSL) has been aligned with (and more or less limited to) the needs of the Enterprise base. Because Edge is neither fully open source nor freely distributable, we are all just going to have to wait and see what Microsoft does outside the Enterprise base, keeping the pressure on as much as we can.
