It can happen when you run setup but some cygwin program/process

Check is some /usr/bin/*.new libraries are present.
In that case a re-boot could solve the issue.

$ cygcheck -hrsv > cygcheck.out &
In the cygcheck.out you can look at the date of the specific

In case of mismatch, close all process and re-install the package
containing that library.
