First, open an MSYS2 shell, for this it doesn’t matter which one. In it run pacman -Syuu If it tells you to quit the shell do so by clicking the red X in the window’s title bar, not by exiting bash. Next, go back to Powershell and run setup-mingw64.ps1 again. jhbuild isn’t going to work until that completes without errors. jhbuild is a bit odd all the way around. The documentation is at https://developer.gnome.org/jhbuild/stable/ <https://developer.gnome.org/jhbuild/stable/> and there’s some more information at https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Projects/Jhbuild <https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Projects/Jhbuild>. “buildrc” is not a jhbuild command, you want “build”.
