Doesn't help. I think my packages got broken. 7zip can open other
packages but those (they are only 2K):

$ ls -ltr ../var/cache/mingw-get/packages/make-*
-rw-r--r-- 1 Administrator Administrators 1938 Mar 21 12:42
../var/cache/mingw-get/packages/make-3.81-3-msys-1.0.13-bin.tar.lzma
...snipped more similar...

Definitely looks suspicious.  I suggest you remove *everything* from
that ../var/cache/mingw-get/packages directory, before you try again;
mingw-get will blindly use any appropriately named package in there,
to save a download, but *without* checking integrity, so if you do
have a corrupt package, it will just keep being retried, and just keep
on failing.  One of my to-do items is to address this issue.
