I could reproduce your problem when running the install script from
an MSYS2 terminal window, and also from a regular command-prompt
with msys on the searchpath.

If this is indeed the problem: keep msys/cygwin from your path
when installing TL, or, if you have cygwin, try the unix/linux
installer, which supports cygwin binaries.
