In my case, opkg.conf was pointing to rc2. Edited by hand (replace rc2 for rc3) and update run smoothly.

In short: in opkg.con where must say:
src/gz chaos_calmer_base http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05-rc3/ar71xx/generic/packages/base

I found:
src/gz chaos_calmer_base http://downloads.openwrt.org/chaos_calmer/15.05-rc2/ar71xx/generic/packages/base

simple solution:
# cp /rom/etc/opkg.conf /etc/opkg.conf

this is a known bug (or is it a feature?) that if you choose to do an OpenWRT sysupgrade while preserving the config files the upgrade process will not over-write the package source information and you end up with obsolete packages.

ALWAYS copy the default opkg.conf after a version upgrade.
