Cygwin Setup - Post Install Script Errors Unknown Package exit code 1

I reccently wanted to start learning how to code. I bought a book which led me to the cygwin site. 

It asked for me to install using the setup.exe and to also select the gcc core: C compiler, which I did. At the end of the installation I received an error or sorts.

It stated: 

Posinstall Script Error
Package: Unknown Package
??? ??? ??? ??? exit code 1.

As far as I can see it installed correctly either way. I can open the cygwin terminal and it works fine.

From there it said to run:

gcc hello.c

But when I do I get an error on the terminal saying:
gcc: no file or directory found
gcc: no input file

I've tried uninstalling, reinstalling. I disabled my AV. I have added 
c:\cygwin\bin to my Windows PATH using an elevated command prompt. 

Thanks in advance, I am totally new to programming and I'm not even sure if I 
navigated the Cygwin page correctly, but I did try my best.
