I lost bash weeks ago and hence cygwin which I used to start from Cywin.bat as

For reasons beyond me, I can run Xemacs and reach bash functionality from
(Tools/shell command) and thus produce cygcheck.
Using setup for updating Cygwin a warning is issued:
update-info-dir.sh exit code -6
Package: _/Unknown package
cygutils.sh exit code -6
dejavu-fonts.sh exit code -6
hicolor-icon-theme.sh exit code -6
libtirpc.sh exit code -6
texlive-collection-basic.sh exit code -6
texlive-collection-latex.sh exit code -6
texlive-collection-mathextra.sh exit code -6
WindowMaker.sh exit code -6
xfig.sh exit code -6
xinit.sh exit code -6
xorg-server.sh exit code -6
xorg-x11-fonts-Type1.sh exit code -6
xpdf.sh exit code -6
Without bash, the postinstall scripts can't run.
In the attached cygcheck the setup failure turns up as 'incomplete' installations.
I suggest that you start by running setup and reinstalling all the packages that
show as incomplete. Be sure to use the latest setup; a new version was just
made available a few days ago.
