No mirror on the official mirror list distributed via
<http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin/mirrors.lst> should be more than, IIRC,
48 hours out of date. You may have stale mirrors still selected in setup,
however. I suggest you unselect the mirror you're currently using, and
then add one of the mirrors from <http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html>, which
is the HTML form of the above list. FWIW, you *can* select more than one
mirror (hold Ctrl while selecting), and setup will show you the latest
packages from all selected mirrors.
