Summary of problem:
When installing Cygwin from a local directory, setup-x86_64.exe version 2.889 doesn't
list the packages that I additionally selected for download when previously downloading
to that directory, and the top line of the GUI under Category view says "No packages found<->Default".

When you run setup to do the install, you need to use the same "Local Package Directory" that you used when you ran it to do the download. I suspect you're instead using the directory containing the packages; this is no longer supported as of setup version 2.883.

From https://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin/2017-12/msg00169.html:

  - Remove support for installing from a local directory which doesn't
    contain a setup.ini file
