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:
Downloading http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/targets/sunxi/cortexa7/packages/Packages.gz
*** Failed to download the package list from http://downloads.lede-project.org/snapshots/targets/sunxi/cortexa7/packages/Packages.gz
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...

See: https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-quick-start/developmentinstallation

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