Explanation: My install of WSL was so old that the WSL1->WSL2 upgrade process didn't even properly recognize it as WSL1. I'm having to do a lot of steps manually. For example, after finishing the upgrade it was logging in only as root, forcing me to look up the UID of my Linux user, open Windows "Registry Editor" and enter my Linux /usr/passwd UID into the Windows registry
@lucianmarin Unfortunately the use case for which I have WSL installed primarily involves editing files on the Windows partition.
