Well, it looks like your network drive doesn't actually let you change
the DACL, or rather just some parts of it; or it has very peculiar
default DACL settings that don't quite mesh with Cygwin. The result is
that when Cygwin tries to set up the POSIX permissions it actually locks
you out from reading that file or directory.

You should either use a local disk, a different network share or get the
share you're using correctly configured. If you can remove all
inheritable DACL on the installation directory before you attempt to
install anything and assume ownership and full control, that would be
worth a try.
