Iperf package installation fail

I have installed iperf and iperfspeed on 2 rockets successfully and it seems to function properly.  I now am trying to install iperf on a remote node which is a Nanostation M2 XW running 3.20.3.1.  I am doing this from the package management section on the administration screen.  I get the following error.

The package is iperf3 3.7-1AREDN.  Any ideas?

Installing iperf and IperfSpeed

Two packages should be installed on each AREDN® node in order to facilitate testing between nodes.
The iperf3 package allows the nodes to function either as an iperf client or server during the test.
The iperfspeed package provides a web-based control interface for running network tests between the nodes.

The current iperf package in the 'docs' is:
http://downloads.arednmesh.org/releases/3/19/3.19.3.0/packages/mips_24kc/base/iperf3_3.5-1AREDN_mips_24kc.ipk

My idea is to install the current recommended package.

I hope this helps, Chuck

Verify your package server

Glenn, you may need to go to your node's Advanced Configuration display and verify the path telling the node where to download packages.  That's described in the online docs here:  https://arednmesh.readthedocs.io/en/latest/arednGettingStarted/advanced_config.html#id2
If you are running version 3.20.3.1 then the path should be something like this for the base section where iperf3 is located:
http://downloads.arednmesh.org/snapshots/trunk/packages/mips_24kc/base/
If you see something else there, you can always click Set to Default and then click Save Setting.
Of course, this all assumes that your node has a way to get to the AREDN download servers across the Internet.  If it doesn't, then you can navigate to that downloads path URL in your web browser, find the iperf3 package and grab a copy of it to install from your local computer on the node's LAN network.

It's working now

Thanks to both of you Chuck and AB7PA for taking the time to help.  I checked Advanced Configuration and the proper package downloads were selected.  I selected defaults for everything anyway, and rebooted.  The package failed to load as before.  I then uploaded the package suggested by Chuck.  It installed  iperf3 3.5-1AREDN.  The default package contained  iperf3 3.7-1AREDN.  So long story short, 3.5-1 works, 3.7-1 does not...on the nanostation.  It DID work on the rockets.  Thank you both for your time.
