Trouble running ssh-host-config

When I right-click cygwin.bat and run as Administrator, ssh-host-config -y
gets the following errors:

What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help you can give.

Cygwin 2.10.0-1
Windows 10 x64
Openssh 7.6p1-1
cyg_server exists as an account with admin privileges, as does my account.
Windows accounts as workgroup, not domain.
