Orangepi r1: Failed to download the package list

For March 27's trunk download of openwrt-sunxi-cortexa7-sun8i-h2-plus-orangepi-r1-squashfs-sdcard.img.gz,
wget fails to retrieve packages, using opkg update from putty's ssh. Dual stack works through the build. Chrome downloaded the packages list copied from ssh. It means that I can't install Luci until wget gets fixed.

Trying an older trunk image, with Luci installed, gives the same wget message:
*** Failed to download the package list from
58.8kb Packages.gz file shows up in my Downloads folder using Chrome through the r1 router, indicating working NAT and repository.

You cannot install packages on older snapshots...


I surmise you could change the repository to the normal one, but I'm not sure that'll work either.
