Try it using a known good locale first, then that locale.
Shut down all Cygwin processes.
Select Packages/View Full/Search cygwin/column New dropdown/bottom
entry/3.5.0-0.231.g93f70d7849b8, same for -devel and -doc if desired, then
Search Clear, reset View Pending, then Next, ...
Run your terminal, redo the commands above, and you should see correct data.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis Calgary, Alberta, Canada
