Problems updating 21.02.1 new install

2 different errors from luci - system - software update:

  1. banner at top of page, no results window.
Unable to execute *opkg update* command: SyntaxError: 
Unexpected end of JSON input" - 
  1. is an error indicated when I do get a results window:
Failed to send request: Operation not permitted
Collected errors:
 * opkg_download: Failed to download, wget returned 4.
 * opkg_download: Check your network settings and connectivity.

My ISP was down earlier today but has been back up for 8hrs or more. - is the problem at my end or is this a telephony package issue?

All help appreciated,

the package file is there, and it's DLable, I'd say it's an issue on your end.

Does the same happen with 21.02.3?

wget returned 4 is in general a network issue, see

  • check if you have enough storage: df -h
  • check your network: ping this will verify your DNS and network access
  • run opkg update and opkg install from cli instead of web page

thanks for the ideas - I re-installed pihole, rebooted my router and some of the machines on my LAN - somewhere in all that was a fix.
