Good. This tells us something important. Right after the path listing,
cygcheck list "Output from C:\cygwin64\bin\id.exe". The id exe is a
cygwin exe which uses cygwin1.dll, cygintl-8.dll, and cygiconv-2.dll.

That narrow the problem. These three DLLs might have been corrupted,
or something is interfering with their correct operation.
