cygwin installation fails in Windows 10 when running with --quite-mode


I am trying to do:

setup-x86_64.exe -q -p wget -v

The installation fails with the last line "Changing gid to
Administrators" and a small dialog box "setup-x86_64.exe" has stopped
working A problem caused the program to stop working correctly..."

I tried
setup-x86_64.exe -q -p wget -v -B
setup-x86_64.exe -q -p wget -v -B -R C:\Windows\Temp

The same result - the setup fails
The interactive GUI installation works fine.
The quite mode fails to install/update Cygwin on the machin where it
is already installed.

What am I missing?
