If you just want to see the list of packages, "cygcheck -cd" should work
fine.  It looks like cygcheck dies when trying to process compressed setup
package listings, so I'd guess you have a corrupted package database.
Try "cd /etc/setup && gunzip -t *.lst.gz" to verify all the listing files.

"cygcheck -cv" should produce a slightly more comprehensive results (it
will probably also tell you which package it's processing when the crash
happens).  If I were you, I'd also look into the following:

binutils                20030901-1         Incomplete
cygwin                  1.5.5-1            Incomplete
shellutils              0.0                Incomplete   [*]

"cygcheck -cv" will tell you exactly why it thinks the package is
incomplete (e.g., which files are missing).
[*] AFAIK, shellutils is not a standard Cygwin package.
