acpitz is an acronym for ACPI Thermal Zone, and acpitzis-virtual-0 is the temperature sensor near/on your CPU socket. I understand this can be unreliable.

package id 0 is your CPU.

Here are a couple of lm-sensors tutorials from linux.com. They are from 2017, but the information should still be applicable.
