    But the binary is (or claims to be) 2020

Ken committed the cygwin binaries yesterday, so they probably weren't
distributed around yet. I imagine they'll be at whatever pretest mirror
you're using later today or tomorrow.

    I'd have expected it to fail to install rather than install an old one if
    this was the case?

No, I don't delete the old binaries; all the consistency checks would go
haywire. It doesn't seem bad to me to keep the existing binaries until
the new ones are in, anyway. Which, in practice, is pretty quickly.

Thanks for trying it, in any case. -k
