There's a few things here that you should clean-up:

* Your path points to a non-Cygwin perl.  Please either remove that
   installation or remove the install directory from your path.
* You have installed Cygwin multiple times on this machine.  Can
   you create a new installation where you only install Cygwin once?
* OpenSSH is one of these installations.  You are virtually guaranteed
   of a non-working 'sshd' if you install this 3rd party app.  If
   you want to use Cygwin's 'sshd', don't install OpenSSH.  If you
   prefer to use OpenSSH, install it and not Cygwin's 'openssh' package.
   Better yet, don't install Cygwin at all in this case.
