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.
