On RUT955 in V7.5.4, I would like to do an update with :

  • opkg update

But I have an error with opkg_download: Failed to download, wget returned 8.

What is the solution?

OK I can fix it with the file /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf

After, no problem with opkg update, but if I have to list upgradable package :
pkg_hash_check_unresolved : cannot find dependency kernel (= 5.4.143-1…) for kmod-ipt-offload


The update errors you are encountering are normal, and you can disregard them. Various repositories are meant for different devices, and certain packages may be unnecessary for specific devices. As a result, some updates might fail on your particular device, but it should not pose any issues unless all updates fail.

If these errors are causing issues for you, like messing up your custom scripts or if you just don’t want to see them, you can comment out the feeds that causing the errors in the /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf file. There are plans to address this in the future to avoid confusion like in this case.

Kind Regards,

OK, so I can’t make opkg upgrade??


Simply run opkg update and then install the packages that you need. For example:

opkg update
opkg install tcpdump

Kind Regards,

OK but we don’t need to upgrade system? like opkg upgrade opkg?


There is no need to run ‘opkg upgrade’.

Kind Regards,
