Hi!
is there an updated manual for Win 11 + WSL2 + Ubuntu 22.04?
I have used Win 10 + Ubuntu 20.04 before, but under Win 11 I cannot download the older Ubuntu version from Microsoft shop.
Things seem to have changed significantly, because I run into all sorts of errors with my old notes how to set it up.

    I do have Win 11 + Ubuntu 20.4
    This is result of command wsl.exe -l -o from PS - there is still no 22.04 for WSL:
    Ubuntu Ubuntu
    Debian Debian GNU/Linux
    kali-linux Kali Linux Rolling
    openSUSE-42 openSUSE Leap 42
    SLES-12 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server v12
    SLES-15 SUSE Linux Enterprise Server v15
    Ubuntu-18.04 Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    Ubuntu-20.04 Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
    OracleLinux_8_5 Oracle Linux 8.5
    OracleLinux_7_9 Oracle Linux 7.9

    Try maybe to check the available releses once agian. As you wrote you have checked in the shop - maybe the result was for VM image and not for WSL ?

    with 20.04 LTS there was simply no download button in the shop, only for 22.04 LTS https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9PN20MSR04DW
    now it seems I could download 20.04 now that I hopefully just worked the problems out (demoshop booted up finally, didn't try much more yet, so don't want to speak too soon)

    but interesting that wsl.exe -l -o does not list it
