        I'm running Windows 7 ULTIMATE x64
        mingw-get version 0.6.3-pre-20170905-1
        <repository uri="http://osdn.net/dl/mingw/%F.xml.lzma">

    That looks okay; I assume that you know that MinGW is 32-bit, in spite of
    your 64-bit host.

        my system specs, CPUz report: https://valid.x86.fr/qv6an5

    And again, here you are pointing me to off-site information, which may not
    be persistent. If you think it may be important, you need to attach it to
    the ticket; I am not going to chase off-site links.

yes I know I MinGW is 32bit.... CPUz reports remain up forever... as far as I
know... and it was easier they trying to copy and paste all my system specs

plus the zlib libz dev package had a overwrite error.. and wouldn't force an
overwrite... had to do it manually...

there were other error popups when I used "Mark all upgrades" option...
