The device has 32MB of RAM and fixes to default system leave less ram 
for opkg and other programs.

Opkg was altered to use an order of magnitude less RAM so it could work 
again, but that came too late for LEDE 17.01 release.

According to jow, the opkg fix will get in the LEDE 17.01.1 that will 
happen in March.

see bugreport here 

In the meantime, either use snapshot/trunk or stay on CC.
