   The Arduino -> Preferences page on my recent RPi4 sudo apt install Arduino installs do not have the Additional Boards Manager URLs field to enter the https://dl.espressif.com/dl/package_esp32_index.json address.

   The first field on my Preferences pages is Sketchbook location: /home/pi/sketchbook

   The first field on Bill's EXCELLENT Getting started with ESP32 example Preference page is 

         Sketchbook location: /home/dronebotworkshop/Arduino 

I do NOT have a visible Arduino directory in my /home/pi/     

I used sudo apt install rpi-imager, then sudo rpi-imager, and then did the update/upgrade,

followed by sudo apt install Arduino.  What did I miss or foul up?  MANY THANKS, in advance!

PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

DO NOT USE:   sudo apt install arduino   when installing an Arduino IDE on a Raspberry Pi !!! 

This command installs an older default Arduino IDE that does not include the Additional Boards Manger URLs field and  link.

DOWNLOAD the:    Linux ARM 32 bits   from Arduino.cc Software page and follow the instructions.

Many thanks to   https://www.raspberrypi-spy.co.uk/2020/12/install-arduino-ide-on-raspberry-pi/
