As a native english speaker, I wouldn't even say "I don't like such music", even though duolingo says that's an acceptable answer. People will still understand what you are trying to say, but it's just not a common thing to say in my opinion. It could be a common thing to say in British english though, what I said refers to American english.
The problem with "this music" is ambiguity. Suppose one enjoys a particular style of music, but simply not the particular composition or rendition referenced by the statement. Though I generally hear the phrase "this [kind/sort] of music", "such music" is also a valid phrase.
"I don't like music like this." said nobody ever. This sounds like what somebody might say, if they were talking about the fact that they don't enjoy music, in their current condition. Say, if there were ten screaming kids, and they couldn't hear their music, and they said "I don't like (listening to) music, like this. (under these circumstances)" Absolutely nobody says this in English, when referring to the kind of music.

As usual with DL, lack of context leads to more questions than answers. That said, "I don't like this music" should be valid alternate - if less literal - answer. And let's face it: there are plenty of instances when DL has gone the not-so-literal route and favored more colloquial/idiomatic answers.
This is why having no option to turn off the word bank sucks. I would have written "I don't like this kind of music" but I end up figuring out how the sentence has to be constructed in english and put "I don't like this music" and was wrong instead of focusing on looking at the russian. Please get rid of it duo.
