I'm trying to install a package for Cygwin. When installing, Cygwin reports no errors yet when I go to the Cygwin terminal I find the packages are not installed.

An example with wget.

  • I call Cygwin setup executable with the -M flag via command prompt.
  • I choose the wget package. enter image description here
  • Install the extra required packages

Cygwin reports no errors. Only thing to note is that it cannot find McShield.

Doing a which wget returns that it cannot find wget.

The setup.log shows these two erros:

2015/06/09 14:59:16 io_stream_cygfile: fopen(/etc/setup/installed.db) failed 2 No such file or directory
2015/06/09 14:59:17 io_stream_cygfile: fopen(/etc/setup/timestamp) failed 2 No such file or directory

Actually looking in /etc/setup/ shows that both exist.


Extra Info

  • This is on Windows 8.1
  • I'm doing this all as administrator
  • I've tried using cmd and powershell
  • I'm using the latest version of Cygwin (2.781 from the install page)

Full setup.log

2.15. What if setup fails? First, make sure that you are using the latest version of Cygwin Setup. The latest version is always available from the Cygwin Home Page at https://cygwin.com/.

If you are downloading from the Internet, setup will fail if it cannot download the list of mirrors at https://cygwin.com/mirrors.html. It could be that the network is too busy. Something similar could be the cause of a download site not working. Try another mirror, or try again later.

If setup refuses to download a package that you know needs to be upgraded, try deleting that package's entry from /etc/setup. If you are reacting quickly to an announcement on the mailing list, it could be that the mirror you are using doesn't have the latest copy yet. Try another mirror, or try again tomorrow.

If setup has otherwise behaved strangely, check the files setup.log and setup.log.full in /var/log (C:\cygwin\var\log by default). It may provide some clues as to what went wrong and why.

If you're still baffled, search the Cygwin mailing list for clues. Others may have the same problem, and a solution may be posted there. If that search proves fruitless, send a query to the Cygwin mailing list. You must provide complete details in your query: version of setup, options you selected, contents of setup.log and setup.log.full, what happened that wasn't supposed to happen, etc.

  • @Soapy I have the same errors in setup.log but installations still succeed. It must be something else. Can you edit your question to include the complete log file?

  • @Soapy There is no mention of wget in setup.log. I'm installing it myself to see what should be in there.

The problem is that I originally installed it on my C:\ drive and then moved it onto another drive.

I tested it by installing it to C:\ and then doing setup -M and installing wget. This worked.

I then moved my Cygwin folder to my E:\ drive and did setup -M to install curl. Doing a which curl returns that it could not be found.

I realise the problem is that Cygwin still though the installation was in the C:\ drive i.e the Root Directory was set to C:\cygwin64. I fixed this by running the setup.exe and changing the Root Directory to point to the correct location.

Now I can setup.exe -M to install packages.
