4.8 WSL System Update

Once you get to a shell prompt enter the following command to update the operating system:

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

I would then also recommend installing wajig (see Chapter 6).

$ sudo apt install python3-pip
$ pip3 install wajig
$ wajig update
$ wajig distupgrade

Given that the system has just been upgraded the distupgrade here may report that there is nothing to be done.

For Ubuntu 18.04 the system can be started from the PowerShell with:

> ubuntu1804

Ubuntu is now running within Windows. The following commands then illustrate a GUI based command demonstrating an animated plot.

$ export DISPLAY=:0
$ pip3 install mlhub
$ ml configure
$ ml install animate
$ ml configure animate
$ ml demo animate

Further resources are available in other sections in this chapter, and from Simon Zhao.
