As it happens, I also saw that message last night. I only wanted to *reinstall*
everything I had installed previously, owing to AVG antivirus having deleted I

One way to do that (if you really want to re-install instead of running
cygcheck and just re-install those packages listed as incomplete) is to
edit /etc/setup/installed.db so that each package version listed there
is "outdated". The next time you run setup it will upgrade everything,
which is thre re-install you want.
