apt-get missing from bash


Oct 1, 2019
Hello everyone,,
I installed build 14328 and added bash. Love bash! However, on my installation apt-get is missing:
bash: apt-get: command not found

I haven't seen other people having this issue, but I'm not sure what to do. This morning I updated to the newest build, 14332, but that didn't help.

I tried uninstalling bash by going into Windows features and unchecking the Ubuntu on Windows checkbox, but while that did have me reboot, it didn't actually remove bash, and it didn't make apt-get appear. When I went back to Windows features, the checkbox was still unchecked. I checked it again, and it had me reboot again, but apt-get still did not appear.

Any theories on why apt-get might be missing?
