Did this issue ever get resolved?  I'm trying to do automated unattended
install of cygwin and I'm pretty sure I'm running into this exact same

Here's my automated install .bat file:

The installer starts and appears to be working fine at first, downloading
all sorts of packages, but then it quits with an error after a while.

Here's the last few lines of /var/log/setup.log:

I'm baffled as to why it's unable to reach site because it
reaches it just fine for all the files before the one it's trying to
download last.

Any ideas as to what might be going on or how to fix this would be greatly
