The installed version of coreutils is 8.32-1.
I see coreutils-9.0-1.tar.gz referenced in setup.ini, but
coreutils-9.0-1.tar.gz is not downloaded to disk.
Setup.exe's version is 2.919, 64 bit.

Whenever I update Cygwin, I first "Download without installing", then,
run setup again and install from disk.
I select View / All, choose Install, then expand All and set "Debug"
to Default to save disk space.
After all new files are downloaded, I run setup and install from disk.

This morning, coreutils-9.0-1 was not installed as again, it was not
downloaded to disk,as mentioned above.

More suggestions are appreciated.
