currently I am not able to fetch some packages with there dependencies. Same packages on v3.6 did not have any of this issues.

## Environment:

/ # cat /etc/issue
Welcome to Alpine Linux 3.7
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)

/ # cat /etc/apk/repositories

## Example:

/ # apk fetch --keys-dir /etc/apk/keys --repositories-file /etc/apk/repositories --output /tmp/ --recursive wget
Downloading musl-1.1.18-r2
Downloading libressl2.6-libssl-2.6.3-r0
Downloading wget-1.19.2-r1
Downloading libressl2.6-libcrypto-2.6.3-r0

/ # apk fetch --keys-dir /etc/apk/keys --repositories-file /etc/apk/repositories --output /tmp/ --recursive curl
curl: unable to select package (or its dependencies)
