I'm trying to use setup-x86_64.exe to update Cygwin. The directory into
which Cygwin is installed is C:\cygwin. I am trying to use a network
shared drive mapped to I: for the download directory, I:\cygwindownload.
setup-x86_64 shows a dialog box with "Directory I:\cygwindownload does not
exist, would you like me to create it?". If I click "Yes", I get a dialog
box with "Could not create directory I:\cygwindownload, sorry. (Is drive
full or read-only?)". I get the same behavior even if I remove
I:\cygwindownload and have setup-x86_64.exe try to create it.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. My cygcheck.out file is too large to attach. Let me know if you need
it, and I'll send it directly.
P.P.S. I know it's picky, but it seems to me like the first dialog box
message is a run-on-sentence.
