So this appears to be a permissions problem rather than a TeX Live problem.

2016/04/29 09:16:17 can't run /etc/postinstall/ No

I don't know why this would happen. Does the file exist? If not, is there a message in setup.log.full indicating that the file couldn't be written?

I do not know wether this is helpful, but:

icacls 'c:/cygwin64/var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/updmap' '/save'

gives the following output:


It doesn't mean anything to me. You might have to wait until Corinna gets back from vacation, unless someone else here can help you sort out the permissions problems.
