Pkg: "expected a name entry in project file"

ERROR: expected a `name` entry in project file at C:\cygwin64\tmp\jl_615.tmp\Project.toml

Maybe Tango's Project.toml was missing a name entry at one point, but it definitely contains one now. Where is julia finding this outdated Project file?

You could try clearing out .julia/clones to reset the cache. There is a problem now that it is not getting updated correctly.
