I'd like to install the latest Ubuntu 19.10 distribution following Ubuntu guide.

I downloaded and extracted the tar image and created "InstallLocation" - empty directory c:\user\tmp\ubuntu. And then following template wsl --import <DistributionName> <InstallLocation> <FileName> called:

C:\Users\user>wsl --import Ubuntu1910 "c:\user\tmp\ubuntu"  "C:\Users\user\tmp\eoan-server-cloudimg-amd64-wsl.rootfs.tar"
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

However the wsl command is failing. How can be a new distro from rootfs image installed?
