install of whois reported error - update-desktop-database - update-desktop-database


I had a problem installing "whois". "whois" was installed but there was an error message..

The setup.log.full says:
2013/05/28 02:17:40 running: C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe --norc --noprofile "/etc/postinstall/" /etc/postinstall/ line 1: /usr/bin/update-desktop-database: No such file or directory /etc/postinstall/ line 2: /usr/bin/update-mime-database: No such file or directory
2013/05/28 02:17:40 abnormal exit: exit code=127
2013/05/28 02:17:40 Changing gid to Administrators
2013/05/28 02:18:13 note: Installation Complete
2013/05/28 02:18:13 Ending cygwin install

limited debug:
1) /etc/postinstall/   -- file does exist and permissions OK
2) Contents of /etc/postinstall/

$ cat
/usr/bin/update-mime-database /usr/share/mime

3) but
  /usr/bin/update-desktop-database  -- does not exist
  (( there is a 'updatedb', though.)
  /usr/bin/update-mime-database    -- does not exist

 setup.exe version 2.774

Thank you !!
