I'm trying to install PyCharm on my Raspberry Pi running Ubuntu Mate. But I don't understand the error message I get.

First I followed this tutorial : https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-install-pycharm-on-ubuntu-18-04/

it was just about writing python sudo snap install pycharm-community --classic

I received this error snap "pycharm-community" is not available on stable for this architecture (armhf) but exists on other architectures (amd64).

Secondly I tried another tutorial using Umake. https://www.rosehosting.com/blog/how-to-install-pycharm-on-ubuntu-16-04/

I received this error Keyerror : 'armhf'.

What does it mean? It is possible to install Pycharm on a raspberry running Ubuntu Mate?

No, it's not possible to install PyCharm on a Raspberry Pi. The armhf error means that the RPi hardware (processor) is not supported by PyCharm.

However: PyCharm does support remote development (after a fashion) on the RPi, but you will have to install PyCharm on a system that runs on supported hardware (e.g. Intel). PyCharm/JetBrains has a tutorial (several actually) that may help you. PyCharm's support for Raspberry Pi requires that a series of "helper apps" be installed on your RPi; these "helper apps" facilitate communication and remote control between your development system (Intel-based), and your target system (RPi). There are quite a few of these "helper apps" installed during the process of configuring PyCharm to do remote development on the RPi.
