I have been using Magisk for two years on my device (Moto G5S Plus). Some time ago I did an upgrade of the Magisk Manager app, unfortunately not knowing I should have unhidden it first. From that moment when I started the app, it would immediately stop. Today I finally had the time to dive into the problem. I uninstalled the Magisk app, and from TWRP uninstalled Magisk.

And now I am trying to install Magisk v22.0. I have downloaded and installed the latest Magisk app. When I start it, it shows my device has a boot ramdisk.
I downloaded the stock boot.img to my device, selected Install from the Magisk card, keep options as they are (keep AVB 2.0/dm-verity: off, keep enforced encryption: on).
At the Method step I selected the downloaded boot.img. When I tap "Go" (or whatever it would say with an English UI), nothing happend. I waited several minutes without anything happening.
The UI is responsive. I can go back and do it all over again, with the same result.

Why doesn't the app patch the image?

Is there anything else I can or should do eliminate traces of the old hidden Magisk manager app (besides a full restore, because without Magisk no root, without root no Titanium backup)?

It doesn't necessary to patch boot image. I had same problem.
Just install magisk 22 with TWRP, reboot...open magisk and install it.
You are ready and rooted.
