Had problems with various (non- and Cygwin) packages under McAfee on
Windows 7, so as prep for Windows 10 upgrade, deinstalled McAfee
(and installed MS Security Essentials AV temporarily), and now running
only Windows 10 Defender (which includes AV formerly in MS SE) and Firewall.
Recommend deinstalling McAfee, installing and enabling Defender and Firewall.

This looks very like you may have run out of Cygwin dll 32 bit address space.

Have you checked FAQ 4.45 docs /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/_autorebase.README and

Read this recent thread to the end:

Have you tried FAQ 4.45 run: "rebase-trigger fullrebase" as *admin*, shut down
all Cygwin processes, reboot in case AV has Cygwin dlls open, run setup without
any other apps running, reboot to clear cached dlls, start and test Cygwin?

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
