wrong arch of stage packages

Bug #2012503 reported by Ondrej Kubik

Bug Description

Snapcraft picks the wrong architecture when not running a native build:

e.g. the following definition generates snap with host machine architecture
  - build-on: [amd64, arm64]
    build-for: arm64

Issue regardless if --build-for=arm64 is used or not
Test snap:
snapcraft: 7.3.post7+gitc7e72c72

Two questions:

1. For your reproducer, are you running on amd64?

2.Can you clarify the meaning of "Snapcraft picks the wrong architecture"?
Do you mean that the staged package `libcryptsetup12` is from the `amd64` repo?

yes to both questions:
- running on amd64
- yes, the staged package is amd64 architecture

if you run pasted simple test snap, and inspect prime dir, you will see there x86 libraries.

Confirmed. I can reproduce this behavior. Snapcraft does not consider the target architecture when fetching stage-packages.
