Can't say for sure, but -D and -L may be mutually exclusive, i.e., interfering
with each other.  (Perhaps -D downloads and then blocks -L from happening.)
Try removing both.
setup -q -X -s %SITE% -l "%LOCALDIR%" -R "%ROOTDIR%"

Or run them one at a time, -D first.
setup -q -D -X -s %SITE% -l "%LOCALDIR%" -R "%ROOTDIR%"
setup -q -L -X -s %SITE% -l "%LOCALDIR%" -R "%ROOTDIR%"

I'd also remove -X, unless you have a good reason to not verify.  That gives
setup -q -s %SITE% -l "%LOCALDIR%" -R "%ROOTDIR%"
