I don't  know which older version you are running, but perhaps the best
thing is to simply delete the entire Cygwin directory and reinstall

Make sure you move any data you have in Cygwin to someplace else before you
delete it of course.

Also delete the Cygwin package directory (wherever you defined it). Then
empty the 'recycle bin'. Given that you've had a bit of trouble, you then
might restart your computer. Windows seems touchy sometimes (to a Mac
aficionado like me), and likes a reboot to completely 'forget' deleted

If you have a fast connection, the entire Cygwin/GRASS reinstall should take
less than 1/2 hour. After that, updates only take a few minutes.
