Comment(by nicolas.dufresne):

 The bigger is the update, the fewer are the chances the workaround works.
 For sure, somebody someday will have to look at opkg software (or switch
 to apt), but meanwhile I've manage to update a very old SHR Unstable with
 the following workaround (note, this is very slow).

 opkg update
 for i in $(opkg list_upgradable); do opkg upgrade $i; done
