I am observing an odd problem while upgrading to 1.5.16.
I select the "Keep" radio button (as I want to upgrade just package cygwin),
then click on "View" to get the Full view.  Then I find the Cygwin
package, and click on the selector to cycle through the options.
But I am not presented with 1.5.16 - only 1.5.15.  When I switch to
the "Curr" radio button, I do see 1.5.16 - but only the once.  If I
cycle through the selections it doesn't reappear - 1.5.15 transitions
straight to "Uninstall".  However, if I click on "Exp" I do see both
1.5.15 and 1.5.16.

Note - I've tried this on two systems, with setup v2.457.2.1 and v2.457.2.2.
In both cases I had a cygwin package earlier than 1.5.15 installed.

Just tried again - selecting "Keep" is not necessary - just go straight
to the Cygwin version selector.  It shows 1.5.16 initially, but if you
change it you cannot get it back without selecting "Exp".  Aha - but if
you leave it at, and then change the setting of another package
(I chose cygutils, just above) then 1.5.16 does reappear.  Bizarre!

This could explain the OP's problem.
