Just installed ubuntu 18.04 in wsl. But when I try to install or update system i'm getting this error

enter Err:1 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security InRelease Could not resolve 'proxyaddress' 

/etc/resolv.conf file:

nameserver nameserver nameserver

help me!

  • Please add output of grep -ir Proxy /etc/apt to the question. – N0rbert Sep 30 '19 at 19:12
  • Check hosts files on windows and wsl. Linux. >> linux /etc/hosts and on windows "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc" – Cornea Valentin Oct 5 '19 at 13:38

my two cents for Windows 10 and WSL

go simple at start...

I have the SAME problem in WSL under Windows 10. same errors.

it was simply Norton Antivirus.

I DO KNOW is very dangerous to stop it, but once stopped (for a while...) Ubuntu starts updating.


before gcc, update ubuntu:

sudo apt-get update
