Microsoft Store offered Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, so that's what got installed (on WSL1). Following Setup works until there's an error with mysql-server. Doing sudo apt install mysql-server produces in /var/log/mysql/error.log:

[ERROR] [MY-012585] [InnoDB] Linux Native AIO interface is not supported on this platform. Please check your OS documentation and install appropriate binary of InnoDB.

Apparently it's not possible with WSL 1. The May 2020 Update upgrades to WSL 2.

mysql Ver 8.0.20-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 for Linux on x86_64 ((Ubuntu))

Doing at the mysql> prompt:

update user set authentication_string=password('my-password-here'), plugin='mysql_native_password' where user='root';

Gives an error:

ERROR 1064 (42000): You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '('my-password-here'), plugin='mysql_native_password' where user='root at line 1

So instead I did:

ALTER USER 'root'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'my-password-here';

Which seems to work ok with:
