Re-enable Ubuntu in WSL after Windows 10 update

Other than uninstalling and reinstalling, the only thing that seems to work easily for me is to disable then re-enable WSL in Windows:

  • Control Panel
  • Programs and Features
  • Turn Windows features on and off
  • Uncheck Windows Subsystem for Linux

Windows will ask you to reboot to complete changes. Refuse that offer politely.

  • Re-check Windows Subsystem for Linux
  • This time, reboot the computer

Bob is your preverbial.
