What exact image have you flashed to your sd and how? Is the blue led blinking?

Did you flash "ubuntu-18.04.3-4.9-minimal-odroid-n2-20190806.img.xz"?
You have to remove the eMMC while testing the SD card booting.
Set the slide switch to "MMC" mode without eMMC.

Once the blue LED was blinking, your board booted well from the SD card.
Try this Ubuntu Mate image if you need a Mate desktop GUI.
