Cause

Timeline accept only "Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.appx" with "Ubuntu2004.exe" inside. Therefore, you must perform a series of renames so that the Timeline Setup can proceed to the next steps of the installation wizard.

Resolution

  1. Rename the CanonicalGroupLimited.UbuntuonWindows_2004.2021.825.0.AppxBundle (which is currently downloading via the link Ubuntu2004) file with ZIP extension.
  2. Unzip CanonicalGroupLimited.UbuntuonWindows_2004.2021.825.0.zip 
  3. In the unzipped files find the Ubuntu_2004.2021.825.0_x64.aspx file and rename it to Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.
  4. Unzip Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.zip 
  5. In the unzipped files find the ubuntu.exe file and rename it to ubuntu2004.exe  
  6. Zip all files including the renamed ubuntu2004.exe with the name Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.zip 
  7. Rename Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.zip file with appx extension. So you should end up with Ubuntu_2004.2020.424.0_x64.appx
