Not quite certain what is going on but something is, possibly related
to the latest recent up-versioning of the setup-x86 executable to
2.882?
Forever I have updated Cygwin using a Command Prompt window and the
typed command
setup-x86.exe -L D:\cyg -R D:\consoleX -gqnm
where the key switches are to update to the Cygwin provision located
at D:\consoleX from a local mirror located at D:\cyg.
(Previously I will have updated x86\setup.ini and x86\setup.ini.sig
and augmented x86\release\ so that everything is in place that is
needed.)
This command now fails, but too early in the process for a logfile to
be commenced. Basically the locally-based installation procedure
hangs.
I changed the command to update conventionally from the internet and
everything worked properly: the update occurred without a glitch.
