Summary of problem:
When installing Cygwin from a local directory, setup-x86_64.exe version 2.889 doesn't
list the packages that I additionally selected for download when previously downloading
to that directory, and the top line of the GUI under Category view says "No packages found<->Default".
When you run setup to do the install, you need to use the same "Local
Package Directory" that you used when you ran it to do the download. I
suspect you're instead using the directory containing the packages; this
is no longer supported as of setup version 2.883.
- Remove support for installing from a local directory which doesn't
contain a setup.ini file
