Has anyone seen the following error when trying to install Make with Bash/Ubuntu? 
"Err:1 https://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 make amd64 4.1-9.1ubuntu1
  Temporary failure resolving 'archive.ubuntu.com'

Looks like a network issue: can you ping archive.ubuntu.com from within the WSL 
environment? It looks to be reachable from my machine.

Thanks Lee, I tried to ping www.archive.ubuntu.com with no success (times out with 
error message "Temporary failure in name resolution".
So I found the used DNS checker to find the IP address of the website above, which is 
91.189.88.142 and when I ping this address, it works. I tested this for a few other 
websites, it seems the ping function works when I type in a IP address but not a 
domain name.

Definitely looks an issue with DNS name resolution. I don’t know much about WSL and how it 
implements networking, but I would start by checking out /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/wsl.conf to 
see if everything looks reasonable there. 

You’re not using a VPN from within Windows at all, are you?

thanks Lee, yes I was using a VPN. It's up and running now, I reinstalled bash and that seemed to 
solve it. thanks for following up.
