Jerry how are you downloading your items from the Cygwin pages? If you
are simply grabbing the actual setup program from the site, try
clicking your refresh button on your browser.

Back when cable delivered Internet access was rather new, at least in
Florida, one of my cousins kept seeing older pages. I instructed him
to do that, it flushed both the cache on the browser, and the one
maintained by the company.

Verizon may have fallen into that fallacy. Of course it depends where
you are, and what sort of connection you are using.
