A new version of Setup (2.918) has been uploaded to:

  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)
  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.917:

package cache contains setup.ini from multiple mirrors of different circas
   Addresses: https://cygwin.com/pipermail/cygwin/2022-January/250656.html

- Make '--package-manager' (-'M') imply 'download and install packages', 
as '--quiet' ('-q') does

- Handle tar type flag 'K' (GNU long link extension) in package archives 

- Some cosmetic fixes in progress reporting
