I checked the setup.ini, and AFAICT it is not damaged. It does mention procps. I can pick *any* pair (or list) of packages and only the first will be installed. If I then try to install the second package, it installs OK. I have also reproduced this on another machine.
When I ran the "-D -L" test, I got a "current ini file is from a newer version of setup.exe" message. My setup was version 2.680. I went ahead with the test using the older setup.exe. The outcome did not change.
I then retried the test with setup.exe version 2.682. No change, only the first package installs.
