I was wondering why opkg wasn't working.
archive.openwrt.org is not used for contemporary (supported) OpenWrt releases/ package repos, if it creates problems for opkg on your devices, you have bigger fish to catch (upgrade to the current version).
I was installing from a snapshot as that is all that is available for the NanoPi R4S. No need to be snarky.
snapshots don't use the archive server either.
Sorry, mine did.
