Manjaro PBP stable update 2022-06-19 bricked
#1
I check for updates daily, and keep up with all updates.
Today there was a rather large install/update set of 300 packages total.  It took around an hour.
It included a new u-boot.

After the install I rebooted, and it appeared to work.  Aisleriot seemed to fail, but that is a minor thing.  I installed the u-boot update to the EEMC using the usual commands.  After that, on reboot it failed and locked at "script failed, continuing" at a => prompts and the status light yellow.  It did not continue.

Booting form an old SD card to Manjaro, I installed the OLDER u-boot to the EMMC in case I had a bad u-boot image, but that did not change the behavior.

Has anyone experienced this? 
I am looking for a way to recover so I do not have to migrate my home off to the SD card and update that.

2nd day later it stopped booting at all.  Power button does not even turn on the power light.  Appears dead.


Considering opening and removing the EMMC.  If that allows it to boot form SD card then I may need to order a replacement EMMC.  

Rather a pain.  If anyone has a better suggestion, link, or pointer I would appreciate the word.  I check back here tor news every day or two.
