On opkg update, there was issues with updating the packages with the below error like statement for all the packages
Package wpa-supplicant version 2018-12-02-c2c6c01b-6 has no valid architecture, ignoring.

on modifying the
cat /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf

from arm_cortex-a7_neon ---> arm_cortex-a7_neon-vfpv4
src/gz openwrt_base http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/packages/arm_cortex-a7_neon-vfpv4/base

Unknown package 'wireless-tools'.
Collected errors:
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package wireless-tools.

I get this error.
I want to install iw package and relevant wireless package, but im stuck and I'm not able to install.
Can someone help me to resolve this issue.

You need to point distfeeds to your own snapshot build server or rebuild the snapshot with the required packages included.

You could also manually copy the packages from your snapshot build and use opkg offline installation
