problems updating webif

tried updating webif (havent used it for a while) and get the following

>>> opkg upgrade webif
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
Upgrading webif on root from 1.0.16-1 to 1.2.0...
Collected errors:
* opkg_download: Failed to download, wget returned 1.
* opkg_install_pkg: Failed to download webif. Perhaps you need to run 'opkg update'?

any ideas anyone please ?
