[alpine-devel] Errors updating an alpine edge system (ext2 /)

I've been encountering some unexpected behavior with an Alpine Linux "edge"
system (/ on ext2, "vanilla" kernel package) in the last week or two.
Essentially, a series of package upgrades error out with complaints like:
ERROR: Failed to set xattrs on usr/bin/python2.7.apk-new: Not supported
ERROR: python-2.7.9-r4: Not supported

Any ideas what the issue is or how to fix it?

Attaching a short log of the problematic packages.
