What does your '/etc' directory look like? It would appear that you either:

a. Don't have access to it anymore (or key files like '/etc/passwd' and '/etc/group').
b. Something has blown away said files.

Warning: Mount entries should not have a trailing (back)slash

C:\Users\strannik\.nx/temp/ /tmp user textmode

How long ago did you install the <> NoMachine/NX?
I'd recommend removing this mount and the duplicate DLLs in its 'bin' directory of
cygwin1.dll, cygcrypto-0.9.8.dll, and cygz.dll (you may find you can/should get rid of
other "cyg" DLLs in that directory as well.) Then add your Cygwin installation to
your Windows path.
