Any one of the official Cygwin mirrors at <>
should have an up-to-date mirror of all Cygwin packages.  Since
(you do mean <>, 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
<> for Cygwin problem reporting guidelines,
including the kind of information you should provide about your system for
us to be able to help you.
