Postinsall script errrors "Unknown package" if running Cygwin setup.exe to update my installation

After I stoped all runnning services "cygrunserv", "portmap",
"sshd" and starting "setup.exe --no-shortcuts" to update all
my packages I got an error since I insalled some additional
packages [I assume and AFAIR which are necessary for some
(command line) pdf tools, like pdftk or ghostscript)

Now I got the following MessssageBox if the update/insall
are finishing

Cygwin Setup - Running postinstall scripts

Postinsall script errrors
    These do not necessarily mean that affected packages will fail to
    probperly, but please check /var/log/setup/.log.full and report any


Package: Unknown package exit code 1

                                                [<Back] [Next>] [Cancel]

Does anybody know what cause this problem and how to fix it?

btw: no x-server is insalled

The last 15 lines of "/var/log/setup/.log.full" shows:
