I suspect you have a windows version of python ahead of the cygwin
version in the path. At least that is how it looks from the output of
"cygcheck -s -v -r" you provided.

To confirm, please issue the following commands in your cygwin terminal window:

python --version

pip --version

git --version

The following commands may also help to confirm this and find the
executables you need to use:

which -a python

which -a pip

which -a git

/usr/bin/python --version

/usr/bin/pip --version

/usr/bin/git --version

Also, note that Python 3.6 on cygwin is named python3 and it uses pip3
for installing packages.
