I just updated my Cygwin installation (using setup-x86.exe) a few
minutes ago, and Setup reported the following error:

    Cygwin Setup - Running postinstall scripts

    Postinstall script errors
        These do not necessarily mean that affected packages will fail to function
        properly, but please check /var/log/setup.log.full and report any problems.

    Package: _/inetutils-server
    inetutils-server.sh exit code 1

I rebooted Windows (which I had to do anyway because of a Windows
update) and tried reinstalling inetutils-server-1.9.4-1, but the
same message appeared.

I looked in /var/log/setup.log.full and found the following at the
bottom of the file.

    Rebasing with list /var/cache/rebase/rebase_all, built from /var/cache/rebase/rebase_lst /var/cache/rebase/rebase_dyn /var/cache/rebase/rebase_user.

I've never had problems like this before.  I had exited all Cygwin
programs before running setup.  I normally run cron, but I stopped
that, and ssh-agent, but I killed that.  I checked the permissions
on /var, and while they don't match the regexp d..x..x..[xt],
I didn't create that directory and setup has never reported any
issues with it before.

    $ ls -ld /var
