First, just to make sure, the inside 'E' is not an expectation, but the value of the in-sample error that corresponds to the weight vector {\bf w}_{\rm lin}. The (outside) expected value is with respect to the training data set, and it means the average value (of the in-sample error) as you train with different data sets.
