This is a simple and fast operation that could be fundamental in order to have a perfectly working Shell.

I will divide this tutorial in some easy step, and remember that if you have any kind of question or comment, feel free to write a message in the comment section below 🙂

  1. Open your Ubuntu Bash by writing Bash in the Windows Start Menu and clicking on “Bash on Ubuntu on Windows”.
  2. Write “sudo apt-get update”
  3. An error about the host may occur, don’t worry about it, it’s normal.
  4. Insert your Ubuntu Account Password
  5. Wait for the downloads of all packages
  6. Write “sudo apt-get upgrade”
