Any one of the official Cygwin mirrors at <http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html>
should have an up-to-date mirror of all Cygwin packages. Since anl.gov
(you do mean <ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/cygwin.com/>, right?) is one of
them, it should be one of THE places you ask for.
I suspect the problem isn't with the mirror. You mention a previous
installation of Cygwin -- perhaps you have stale mounts? Please review
<http://cygwin.com/problems.html> for Cygwin problem reporting guidelines,
including the kind of information you should provide about your system for
us to be able to help you.
