I have been using both 32 and 64 bit msys2.  For this example, I was using
i686(32bit).  If your machine is a 32bit machine use i686 or x86_64 for a
64bit machine. Once msys2 is installed, you can download 32bit or 64bit
mingw_w64 packages. In this example "C:\msys32\mingw32"

Most likely, the adwaita theme was not installed. Try to download the icon
themes again.

This will say [installed] if theme is installed. Here I have both 32/64 bit.
$ pacman -Ss adwaita
mingw32/mingw-w64-i686-adwaita-icon-theme 3.15.1-1 (mingw-w64-i686-gnome) 
    GNOME icon theme (mingw-w64)
mingw64/mingw-w64-x86_64-adwaita-icon-theme 3.15.1-1 (mingw-w64-x86_64-gnome) 
    GNOME icon theme (mingw-w64)

If not type:
$ pacman -S mingw-w64-i686-adwaita-icon-theme mingw-w64-i686-hicolor-icon-theme
