  3. Couldn't install Ubuntu 18.04 on WSL

    I am currently running 16.04 version of Ubuntu bash on Windows 10 Pro (v1803) using WSL. But, I couldn't install the newly released 18.04 Ubuntu on my machine from the Windows Store. The store just refreshes on pressing the Get button. I tried resetting
    the store app, but it didn't help.

  4. Installing a Package in WSL - Ubuntu 20

    Cannot install WSL distributions though microsoft store, only ubuntu

    I have been trying to install Ubuntu 18.04 and Debian through the windows store, the only button available is "Get", but pressing it does nothing.

    I have enabled/disabled WSL a few times and rebooted.

    I previous had WSL preview, and then ubuntu 16.04 installed via the app store. Both are completely removed.
