I had Debian installed on my current computer, after many years of Ubuntu. I'd rather not have another computer with Debian on it .  . . . . too many problems installing certain programs I use that were easy in the Repository system of Ubuntu. How is Manjero in this regard? Thanks again.

I'm also from the Ubuntu/Debian universe.
Manjaro has an interface to install packages that is really very easy. (Pamac)
Even on the command line it's easy enough.
Sometimes there may be a need to do manual configuration after installation but I've never encountered any problem.

You just have to keep in mind that architecture is in arm 64, you won't necessarily have all the x86_64 applications.
