I was looking into this SharePoint Migration Tool from MS. But I don't know how to get it to migrate content between 2 SP online content.

I installed it from here.

When I try to add SP Online URL as a source it tells me it wants only on-premises site.

Can I do SP Online to SP Online?

The Mover tool is ideal for:

  • Microsoft 365 tenant to tenant migration
  • Egnyte
  • Amazon S3
  • Azure Blob Storage
  • Google Cloud Storage

New SPMT only supports migration from:

  • SharePoint Server 2010, 2013, and 2016
  • SharePoint Foundation 2010 and 2013
  • File shares

You can find more information in below articles:
