I tried to update a well running cygwin installation from Cygwin 1.7.24 
(64 bit release) to Cygwin 1.7.25 on W7. Setup (most recent version from didn't succeed because of "incomplete download". I tried 
severel different mirrors, everytime the same problem. Then I removed 
the cygwin installation, i.e. deleted the folder, tried to install again 
and got the same error. Disabeling all Virusscanner and Firewall 
software didn't help.
Defenitely it is not a problem of lack of discspace or something like that.
A test with the 32 bit release (Cygwin 1.7.24) worked fine without any 
On W8 i had exactely the same behaviour.
