Bonjour Sush !

Personne always refers to a person (no one, nobody) whereas aucun/e can refer to any noun that has been previously mentioned (none / no [noun]) :)

Bonne journée !

Bonjour Sush, «personne n'est venu» translates to no one came, on the other hand «aucun n'est venu» translates to none came I get the sense from the nuance difference, the answer would like in the contextual scenario of the two phrases. Bonne chance,
