I tried updating my Cygwin installation, and got a message indicating

was just trying to update my current configuration to the latest release.
My suspicion is that something has been recently updated incorrectly.
I've tried a reinstallation from scratch, and still have the problem,
so it's not clear how it can be something I'm responsible for. Of
course, I could be wrong, but I thought I'd let you know. If I'm
right, I assume others will soon be having the same problem.
I'm having the same problem too. Some packages are missing in setup.
libreadline6 is one. rsync is another. With an old install, they are
visible in the setup with with a question mark instead of there size.
They are however listed in the "setup.ini" but they are missing the
version field... yes that's it: all packages missing the version field
are missing from the setup tool in a fresh install.
Actually, more than the missing "version" field, it's more likely the
missing "install" field that is the source of the problem (or both).
