Could you check if the setup.ini.sig file is just not stored to

put alongside the setup.ini file?
Is there a new requirement that a local repository has to have a
signature file? And does it have to be setup.ini.sig (rather than,
for example, setup.bz2.sig)?
You can always tell it to not check the signature (--no-verify / -X),
but if the directory you set it upon looks like a mirror and has a setup
file, then it will by default want to check the signature (belonging to
the actual suffix used: .xz, .bz2 and lastly .ini).
I maintain my own small repository at a remote site and mirror it on
my local machine. It contains, for each architecture, setup.ini,
setup.xz, and setup.xz.sig. Installation from the remote site works
fine. If I try to install from my local mirror, setup complains that
it can't find setup.ini.sig. I can install from the local mirror only
if I add setup.ini.sig.
Same here. I maintain a local mirror and use my own setup.ini files
(created with genini); these do not have 'sig' files. Directory
structure is as follows:
The 'setup.ini' files are located in the 'x86' and 'x86_64' directories;
setup is pointed at the 'cygwin-2015-10-16' directory. Eventually
managed to install using an older version of setup that I had downloaded
Hope this helps,
