However, it means that this version does assume that you are not using
FAT or FAT32 to hold your repositories, since they do not store file
permissions very accurately.

So I have stopped updating cygwin since the first time this message appears because I am using git on FAT32 usb hard drives. What should be the issues I could get? I am using FAT32 because I have never been able to use ntfs without permission problems when using the hard disk on another computer. What else could I do?

Switch to NTFS and set the permissions you need where you need them to the well-known SID of world/Everyone? See:
