I guess I did the follwoing to bypass this problems.
With the platform provided* cabal.exe at first place in the PATH
variable, I run:
- cabal update
- cabal install cabal-install-0.6.4
The only thing remaining was, I had the Cabal-184.108.40.206 and related
entries in my local package.conf file then, from the former installation
of cabal-install-0.8.0 - which failed when doing `cabal update` as you
I decided to remove those entries/packages, although they seemed to
cause no issues, when blindly testing some package installations with
* folder %HASKELL_PLATFORM%\extralibs\bin
