The first thing to try is a setup snapshot from
<>.  If that exhibits the same behavior,
then please attach the /var/log/setup.log.full from that session and the
/var/log/setup.log snippet corresponding to that install.  Some
information about your system might also help (if the cygwin package
installs cleanly, run "cygcheck -svr" and attach the output of that).
