To me it sounds like a path conflict, missing, wrong or
duplicate configuration, or keys in this case. Are you, or were you
using one of these applications also natively on Windows? If it's a new
system, maybe you don't know something was preinstalled. On the other
hand, did you even install Cygwin's own packages, and are you sure
you're starting those? (Try `which <app>`) Are you or is something
modifying your environment? Where are your ssh keys stored?

You probably need to make those apps aware of where they are.
