Thanks! I have not yet tried your directions, but everything else I tried either failed, or the result was sooooo slow in booting, I gave up. In my many attempts, I destroyed the micro holder; I will have to physically hold it in, else devise some mechanical means (shoestring?) to hold the microSD in place.

Try pressing a key like ESC in your perpetual boot,there is a bug in the arm manjaro eMMC installer where it isn't loaded until you escape from the boot splash screen.

Keep in mind, if you're using the 20.04 eMMC installer, there's another bug that crashes the installer when you attempt to select the drive to install to.
I succeeded in booting from the micro. Used dd unto the micro; could not get the right Etcher to work on PBP. Now I am ready to do the final step. Do not understand why I need to get a fresh image; the original is till there. How do I identify the destination?
'lsblk -p' gives:
mmcblk1      179:0    0 58.2G  0 disk
mmcblk1p1    179:1    0  64M  0 part /boot
mmcblk1p2    179:2    0 58.1G  0 part /
mmcblk1boot0 179:32  0    4M  1 disk
mmcblk1boot1 179:64  0    4M  1 disk
mmcblk1rpmb  179:96  0  16M  0 disk
Is mmcblk1p1 or mmcblk1p2 the correct destination?
Would appreciate an answer.

I should have probably been more clear to that, when making the initial microSD card image, you should be on a system that uses an intel or amd chip, because Balena Etcher does not work on aarch64 (arm).  Etcher will therefore not work on PBP.

It looks like your partition numbering is different than mine was.  
mmcblk1p1 and mmcblkp2 look like partitions on the mmcblk1 drive.  I’m not sure why you don’t have your microSD card listed on here.  I would suggest asking the real experts on the Manjaro ARM forums for clarification.
