Setup problem: incomplete nonexistent package

We have a local cygwin mirror (of  Recently, setup fails
with the e have a local cygwin mirror (of  Recently, setup fails
with the error that the package ssmtp-2.60.9-2 is incomplete.

But we don't have that package in our mirror, and I don't have that
package installed, as far as I can tell.  So where is it getting this
incomplete package from?  Our ssmtp directory on our mirror looks like

    drwxrwsr-x    2 mirror   postdrop     4096 Sep  1 16:31 .
    drwxrwsr-x  245 mirror   postdrop     4096 Aug 31 18:40 ..
    -rw-rw-r--    1 cameron  postdrop      281 Aug 28 21:54 md5.sum
    -rw-rw-r--    1 mirror   postdrop      276 Jul 16 16:11 setup.hint
    -rw-rw-r--    1 mirror   postdrop    46738 Feb 19  2004 ssmtp-2.60.4-3-src.tar.bz2
    -rw-rw-r--    1 mirror   postdrop    22325 Feb 19  2004 ssmtp-2.60.4-3.tar.bz2
    -rw-rw-r--    1 cameron  postdrop    53716 Aug 28 19:20 ssmtp-2.60.9-3-src.tar.bz2
    -rw-rw-r--    1 cameron  postdrop    24503 Aug 28 19:20 ssmtp-2.60.9-3.tar.bz2

I tried for 15 mins, combinations of trying to uninstall the various
packages (ssmtp, but perl-manpages were another, and perl, and then
ImageMagick ...), so right now I'm removing the entire Cygwin
installation and am about to start again from scratch.

Hmm, that was a serious mistake.  Now I get incomplete downloads on
more fundamental files.  I think I'll assume our mirror is completely
broken and install from the internet.
