Hi Sean,

I think the install script is failing because your operating system is not one of the options in the install script.  You can see this in the link produced by the script.  There should be an OS type between the two hyphens and after the word "latest", but it's missing for you.

I don't have any experience installing yt with Cygwin, but here's what I recommend trying.  Maybe someone else can chime in if I'm wrong.

Download and install miniconda on your own just from a web browser.  Then, once the install has finished, you can use conda to install the dependencies with:
conda install h5py numpy matplotlib sympy scipy setuptools jupyter

Then, you should be able to install yt with pip:
pip install yt

If you want Rockstar, then you'll have to install yt from source.  First, clone this rockstar repo and build the library:
hg clone http://bitbucket.org/MatthewTurk/rockstar
cd rockstar
make lib

Then, get the yt source:
hg clone https://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt
cd yt

In there, make a file call rockstar.cfg, and give the path to the rockstar directory, then do:
python setup.py develop

This should be mostly right, but let us know if you run into any trouble.

I have attempted to change the url it searches for to the correct one listed here ( https://repo.continuum.io/miniconda/) , but nothing I have tried works. The script used was the default script obtained by the

 wget http://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/raw/yt/doc/install_script.sh
command listed in the installation tutorial, which was only modified to also install scypy, astropy, and Rockstar halo finder.

Below this is the error message:

Awesome!  Here we go.
