Perhaps you can try the following (unfortunately complex) procedure to
help me investigate the problem:
1. Using an old setup from https://cygwin.com/setup/, install the gdb
and upx packages.
2. Fetch setup 2.911, and the corresponding symbols. Make sure setup is
$ wget https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.911.x86_64.exe
$ chmod +x setup-2.911.x86_64.exe
$ wget https://cygwin.com/setup/setup-2.911.x86_64.dbg
3. Decompress the setup executable using 'upx -d'.
$ upx -d setup-2.911.x86_64.exe
4. Run setup under gdb. Avoid elevation so setup stays under the
control of gdb. Load the symbol file into gdb.
$ gdb --args ./setup-2.911.x86_64.exe -B
(gdb) symbol-file setup-2.911.x86_64.dbg
Reading symbols from setup-2.911.x86_64.dbg...
5. When gdb reports an error, capture a backtrace.
(gdb) bt full
