Re: Problem after upgrading from 1.7.9 to 1.7.10-1 - system commands not found

Still no luck. Since I don't have "uname" command either, I decided to
"reinstall" the "cygwin" (1.7.10-1) and "coreutil" (8.15-1) packages
by running the setup and selecting "reinstall". I rebooted my PC
before doing this so there should not have been any Cygwin processes

After this, I'm still having the same issue - I can only execute the
internal "bash" commands, which are the commands listed by doing
"help" from the shell. I'm not able to run any other commands such as
"ls", "uname", and "man" ...

I see the following message in the install log. Does this means the
"reinstall" failed?

Other threads [1] from people who have taken this course have shown that
the windows update-on-reboot doesn't always work, in which case you
might still be running cygwin 1.7.9 inadvertently (and coreutils 8.15
requires cygwin 1.7.10 for things like ls to work).  What does 'uname
-a' say; and if it is still 1.7.9, then you need to either rename
/bin/ to cygwin1.dll, or rerun setup.exe and reinstall
cygwin1.dll, but either way, make sure that this time you really have
stopped all cygwin processes first.
