The package database is written to /etc/setup, do you have permisson on this directory?

I'm running the installation as myself, rather than administator, but I have the same rights as administrator (I'm the only one using this machine), and CygwinSetup.exe has already written more then 10 MB into C:\cygwin\etc when this happens. I can see 474 objects in C:\cygwin\etc\setup
