Hello, I have a the metro version rooted and was trying to install the 11.0.8.BE88CF update. After I first got the message to update, I disabled automatic update in dev, then went to magisk, uninstalled - restore image - didn't reboot, then I tried to update via ota but now I'm getting an installation error. Is it safe to reinstall magisk and should I do it via direct installation or install magisk to inactive slot (even though I wasn't able to update). Or is there another way I can update? Thanks in advance and have a good one.

Not sure how you can easily restore, but you shouldn't have uninstalled magisk.
I didn't restart the phone yet and magisk still works, I have a backup of the recovery via twrp from when I first rooted a couple months ago. I also have partition backup/restore installed (but not backed up yet). I used this root method, but I renamed magisk and flashed through twrp as suggested in the comments https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/simple-method-root-n10-5g-using-magisk-for-factory-stock.4327659/

When I update stock, I don't uninstall it first - just update over it. Have not had any problems with stock. Note - only use full updates - never partial.

I tried to update over it initially without uninstalling but I got the same installation error, so I thought this guide for uninstalling - restore image would work. So I'm guessing now I either need to wait for someone to upload a patched image. Or patch the image that was backed up from twrp using the method in the simple root method link. Or using the guide from this post to pull the ota url and patch the image. Or possibly re root this image using either install directly through magisk or install to inactive shot or reboot and install magisk again through twrp? I don't mind having to reinstall, since all my files are backed up, I'm mainly worried about some sort of soft brick since this is my only phone.

If you flash the TWRP you lost stock recovery thus all future OTA will fail, regardless it's partial or full. Magisk only restore the boot partition wouldn't fix TWRP/recovery.

Don't flash TWRP if you want to use stock rom, especially for metro/tmo variants as full ROMs are hardly available....

If you have unlocked bootloader and get the unlock key file ready, you can start over from MSM to get back to stock metro ROM, upgrade to latest ROM. Then unlock the bootloader, follow my guide or use MSM readback mode to extract the stock boot.img, then root the phone.

Just reinstall using direct install to restore previous state. Like mentioned above, the update will fail if TWRP is flashed.

Gotcha thanks, I got confused because the other guide said that method would survive ota updates. I have the key still, so after I do the other steps, I should use this thread's method to root the phone?

That's good to hear thanks, I wanted to make sure I could get it to the previous state before I started messing with reinstalling then extracting/patching the boot.img. The other guide confused me because it said it would survive ota updates. Once I have my recovery fixed, I'll make sure not to install twrp this time.

Can you please give me a place to download current Stock ROM's for the Nord 10 5G TMobile? I am struggling to find current stuff - and/or can I somehow back up what I have on the device?
I cannot support carrier locked ROMs because they do not provide ROM downloads and I don't have one.
However: you can follow the instructions How to get OxygenOS OTA url for new updates in OP.
This way you can provide download links to the community
