I tried to run sudo apt-get update this morning on Ubuntu 16.04 running on WSL, and it just keeps trying every server over and over, racking up Ign responses. What the heck is going on here?

Windows 10 - 1809
WSL - Ubuntu 16.04:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

Not sure it's a WSL issue, but figured it doesn't hurt to mention that.

$ sudo apt-get update

This behavior was caused by an antivirus program blocking HTTP/HTTPS traffic from Windows Subsystem for Linux.
