The version number goes backwards here, I'd suggest sticking to the
date here (2019-04-21) otherwise opkg would like to install the older
snapshot again:

# opkg update
[...]
# opkg list-upgradable
hostapd-utils - 2.8-63962824-6 - 2018-12-02-c2c6c01b-6

wpa-cli - 2.8-63962824-6 - 2018-12-02-c2c6c01b-6
hostapd-common - 2.8-63962824-6 - 2018-12-02-c2c6c01b-6

You might also want to reset PKG_RELEASE to 1:
