Ubuntu 20.04 LTS WSL

Hello All,

New to Sensu and Linux so please be kind. :grinning:

Running Windows and have Microsoft’s WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) installed and installed Ubuntu from the Microsoft Store running version 20.04 LTS. Tried following the steps outlined in https://docs.sensu.io/sensu-go/latest/operations/deploy-sensu/install-sensu/#1-download and when I try to install it, I receive the following error;

tg@mycomputer:/etc$ sudo apt-get install sensu-go-backend
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package sensu-go-backend

Any ideas what I have wrong here? Thank you for all and any help.

Can you confirm that you did the step prior to that?

# Add the Sensu repository
curl -s https://packagecloud.io/install/repositories/sensu/stable/script.deb.sh | sudo bash

If you did do that, you probably need to do sudo apt-get update prior to the sudo apt-get install sensu-go-backend. I think that step is missing from the documentation.
