Looking for a PBP NVMe/SSD cable
Perhaps this video will help a bit? https://youtu.be/cJJBJ4XqpOI?t=766
I dislike the current over reliance on video and avoid them when possible.  It took me over an hour in 2 attempts to download that with youtube-dl, 300 MB, and about 2 seconds of it is relevant.

This is a quick snapshot done in my lap with a flashlight as light source.  The right side of the connector on the right flips up to insert the cable, it's open here.  Not what I expected, I was looking at the other side.   You can see the contacts in there that the cable connects with.  Then that black piece rotates back to close it.  This is on the adapter but the connector on the CPU board is the same.

I keep reading about Manjaro, I might try it.  Temporarily on an SD at first.  Torrent download available, perfect.

Nah, I've tried that before.  Got rid of it.  I'm just used to Debian/Raspbian I guess.  The package system seems much more developed.

There, I got it.
Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 953.9 GiB, 1024209543168 bytes, 2000409264 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

That's the 4th or 5th time I've had my PBP open for one reason or another, I hope I don't have to open it again for a very long time.
I've since bought a 2 TB NVMe and a housing for it that terminates in a USB3 plug. So now I have portable storage. I have a few hard drives set up that way, this I expect will last the rest of my lifetime based on the MTBF. So I went from 0 SSDs to 2 in a few months.
