Windows 10: BASH AptPackageIndexUpdate - how to turn off?
BASH AptPackageIndexUpdate - how to turn off?
Every so often, BASH randomly seems to open AptPackageIndexUpdate, then seems to stay open as it continues to do things, whatever they might be, and uses a considerable proportion of CPU time:
It goes on doing something for ages, possibly forever, without any indication of what is happening in the console after "Reading package lists... Done". Is it a bug?
Obviously this can affect foreground processes, and may be inconvenient, dropping frames when trying to watch a video stream etc.
TaskManager seems ineffectual in stopping the BASH process tree, in fact the console window seems to stay open whatever is done to try to close it.
What can be done to give more control over this behaviour, short of uninstalling BASH?

I just did a clean install of 64-bit Win 10 Preview Build 14951 from an install.esd converted to an iso image. I go to Turn Windows features on or off and check the box marked Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta). When my system reboots, an error...
I recently updated my Windows 10 in order to check the new bash feature which Microsoft included. When I launched the bash, a download prompt was there, obviously I entered the "y" and waited to complete the download. But the thing is download isn't...
I'm curious, has anybody already plaid with the new Linux subsystem (bash)? I don't know about you but I love it. Finally I can use the powerful commands of Linux to create folders, files etc. For me that alone is worth the update.
I'm running Windows 10 Education version. I am on windows insider build: th2_release_sec 10586.
I haven't received the relevant update where `enable subsystem for linux` or whatever it is appears under the `turn windows features on or off` tab....
