I suspect you have a windows version of python ahead of the cygwin
version in the path. At least that is how it looks from the output of
"cygcheck -s -v -r" you provided.
To confirm, please issue the following commands in your cygwin terminal window:
The following commands may also help to confirm this and find the
executables you need to use:
which -a python
which -a pip
which -a git
Also, note that Python 3.6 on cygwin is named python3 and it uses pip3
for installing packages.
