Have you tried and upgrade from inside X ?

You should to the upgrade from a ssh session IMHO...

But this would lead to another problem.

My suggestion : 
1. connect into the terminal app in the GUI
2. there type/tap "opkg update"
3. also there type/tap "opkg upgrade dropbear"
4. connect via SSH
5. inside the SSH shell, do "opkg upgrade"

This was the only way I found to upgrade (almost) everything.

Hope this helps.
