There's no such thing as "Cygwin version 2.6.0 only."
Cygwin is a collection of different programs with unified installer.

Whoever "authorized" it must provide a repository of "authorized" packages.

How do we go about getting this
Cygwin is a rolling package release system: setup program, base library, support
library, and program packages are continually updated and released.

Older versions are unsupported by the volunteer package maintainers, who apply
fixes only to the latest releases of packages to create updated versions.
So outdated older package versions will have unpatched security issues which
then become the responsibility of anyone choosing to run old releases.

Cygwin 2.6 is only the version of the base package: you really need a list of
all installed packages and their versions.

You can find older packages at:

Good luck running any old releases under Windows 10.
