View Full Version : Windows 10 WSL Unable to upgrade Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS to 18.04.1

August 29th, 2018, 05:04 PM
I am using Windows 10 Enterprise Version 1709 64 Bit (16299.611) and when starting WSL and trying to run the below command to upgrade to 18.04.1 it fails all the time with network connection error after running for some time

Commands used are

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo do-release-upgrade

I am behind a proxy and I can download other packages and http_proxy and https_proxy variables are set correctly. Not sure why it is failing.

Error message is

Err http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/universe amd64 Packages
