cygwin closing abruptly

Hi guys, I've been hacking on and off for a year or 2 now, and i'm just getting back into it again.  A few months ago I got a new computer, and recently transferred my Cygwin folder with my old pokemon crystal hack files over, and I can't seem to get it to run.  I backed up my old hack versions in a separate folder, and completely uninstalled and re-installed Cygwin on my new computer, and when I try and install just the default packages, I get these postinstall script errors:

Package: _/base-cygwin
000-cygwin-post-install.sh exit code -1
Package: _/base-files
base-files-profile.sh exit code -1
Package: _/ca-certificates
ca-certificates.sh exit code -1

It says that these don't necessarily mean the program wont run, but, well, it doesn't.  Every time I open the terminal, it shows up on the screen for maybe a half a second, then closes immediately.  I don't know why it wont work.  For reference, i'm using Windows 10 now, and was on Windows 7 before.  Also, here's the (probably) relevant part of the var/log/setup.log file (I won't post the whole thing for space reasons, obviously):

Re: cygwin closing abruptly

I don't know if that's the reason, but I heard Rareware's buying out Cygwin.
