wslu (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This is a freeze exception request;
1. This update is part of WSL team's Ubuntu WSL Onboarding Experience for 20.10 cycle;
2. This update is to match with the upstream version of wslu as other distributions (e.g., Alpine Linux);
3. Ubuntu version of `wslu` is very outdated and users are asking about missing features (e.g., wslact);
4. This also allow to address multiple bugs(#64, #66, #93, #94, #100, #113, #117, #118, #125, #129, #133, #138, #141, #143, #144 and #146 on GitHub);
5. This also contains improvements for future snapd on Ubuntu WSL support (#143 and #146 om GitHub).

This is an isolated package which impacts only the WSL images, and following the upstream experience is sensible.

What kind of testing is this going to go through between now and release?

Hi Steve,

The testing will be going as the following:

1. checkout the ubuntu/master branch on wslu GitHub or launchpad repository;
2. running `autopkgtest path/to/folder -- null` locally with Ubuntu WSL 20.04 on WSL2/WSL1 on Windows machine;
3. View the result of the test, with 7 Windows Explorer open and 3 webpage open on the default browzer.

Here is a sample of local run result:

^ The sample test run is also based on ubuntu/master 20.04 build running on top of Ubuntu 20.04.

Thanks, that sounds like an appropriate level of testing for this. FFe granted.
