I tested here on a fresh install of Windows and WSL, and there is no error message, it just immediately returns you to a prompt.

However, if you `sudo apt install --reinstall iputils-ping` then ping starts working again.

@Platform2265 can you try running the above command and see if that fixes ping for you?

@g0tmi1k there is no error message. `ping` outputs absolutely nothing - you are simply back at the prompt. `sudo ping` works as expected.

@steev yes, re-installing iputils-ping does indeed fix the problem. Thank you.
