Ubuntu Won't Download from Microsoft Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed Linux under Windows and was directed by https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10 to download my favorite distribution from the Microsoft Store.  The former "Get" button now labeled "Get the App" clicks but no action.  I have the distribution by other means.  I have no idea where to put it so bash can find it.  Any ideas?

  • I was led to the Microsoft Store from this URL:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/wsl/install-win10

    The Ubuntu link leads to this URL:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/ubuntu/9nblggh4msv6?rtc=1

    whose Get button did not work for me.  However bash under Windows 10 led me to a different URL that works properly.  May have been an intermittent problem over at Software Central.

    Anyway I did get what I wanted and that's all that matters.  Thanks for helping.

  • Does Store open for you if you try that? Just tried that install and the Get the App button opens the Store then the Get button.

    Are you logged in with a MS account or a local account?

  • I shall suggest you to clear cache:

    Press the Win+R keys to open the Run dialog.
    Type WSReset.exe, and click/tap on OK.
