Good question. Pair.com is listed under available sites. It is listed as a
ftp url. ftp://ftp.cygwin.mirrors.pair.com
I think the issue is that by default setup.exe "Skips" libpcre0. To get
less to work, I had to click into the "Libs" section of the setup preview
and "check" libpcre0 to get this library installed.

Is pair.com a valid Cygwin mirror site? I don't see it on the list of
available sites in setup. It's possible that this site is old/
unreliable/no longer a mirror. Please try one of the other sites listed by
setup and report back if you still see the problem.
