Hi, Getting consistent permission denied errors on postinstall of 
ca-certificate. It appears to be oversight, out of a well-intentioned 
attempt to protect script generated reference files. There error as it 
appears in setup.log.full: 2022/08/26 11:39:07 running: 
e:\cygwin-x86_64\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile 
"/etc/postinstall/" /usr/bin/ln: failed to create 
symbolic link 
Permission denied /usr/bin/ln: failed to create symbolic link 
Permission denied 2022/08/26 11:39:21 abnormal exit: exit code=1 The 
directory permissions are: $ ls -ld

/etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/directory-hash/ I've experienced this on 
two installs, both where I run setup exe with -B, no privelege 
elevation). Both installs have had an manual manipulation of the 
directory, or its parents up to /etc. -- Regards, Shaddy
