Not sure if it will work, but I suggest trying this :

- remove arch=('x86_64' 'armv7h' 'aarch64') from the body

- add the correct arch= inside all package_ functions

In case that doesn't work, this might be a (rather crude) alternative :

- keep arch=('x86_64' 'armv7h' 'aarch64') in body

- in package_aspnet-runtime-2.1

     remove arch=('x86_64' 'armv7h')

     add statements that

             create an empty package when $CARCH='aarch64'

             make normal package for 'x86_64'  and 'armv7h' arches
