Upgrading Windows subsystem for Linux

I’m running Windows 10 Enterprise and using ubuntu 14.04 trusty which is what you get when you install the software.

I wanted 16.04 (xenial) which is available on the early release channel from MS but I’m not a subscriber.
The command to do this is simple: do-release-upgrade.
If it doesn’t work due to screen, then apt-get remove screen and reinstall after the upgrade.

Hope this helps,
