I am new to all this but want to learn. been trying for days to figure this out. I have installed WSL2 on my computer and made sure to enable all features to run and use kali linux. I have just fixed a problem to actually use the GUI for kali linux using kex. but now my problem is only having the minimal install of kali. I have tried installing the metapackages with no success. and it also seems like I cant install zsh because of this. if there is anyone running into the same problem or has a solution please let me know.

You most likely won't find anyone here running Linux on Windows subsystem, so your chances of getting help here are close to zero. You will have more luck elsewhere, maybe the official Kali forums?
