I installed Ubuntu Linux on Windows 10. Everything seems to be working fine. The version I installed has no version number, and from the command line the kernel version is:

$ uname -r

This would correspond to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. On Microsoft Store is written:

To upgrade to a new release please run do-release-upgrade in the Ubuntu terminal.

This is what I get:

$ sudo do-release-upgrade
[sudo] password for user:
Checking for a new Ubuntu release
No new release found.

The available Ubuntu releases up to today are 19.04, 18.10, 18.04 LTS, 17.10, 17.04 and 16.10.

This is what is in /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades: Prompt=lts

Shouldn't the system upgrade to version 18.04 LTS?

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, version 10.0.17763, 64 bit

    Yes, yes it should. Please run sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade then try again the release upgrade. – GabrielaGarcia May 6 at 17:41

    Let's start with some required information. What version of Windows 10 are you running? Instead of commenting be sure you edit your question and include this vital information. – Ramhound May 6 at 18:52
  • Did you install WSL Ubuntu through the Windows Store or using the legacy method? This might also help – Ramhound May 6 at 22:23
  • @Ramhound - I installed it through the Windows Store. – Pietro May 6 at 22:28
  • @GabrielaGarcia - Done. Now it says: "There is no development version of an LTS available.". The kernel version is unchanged. – Pietro May 6 at 22:33
