I do not know if this is informative, but since my XO-1s have os874 already, I tried it from the _XO-1.5_ that still runs os873 and got:

@ERROR: unknown module 'build-official-874': build 874 has already been downloaded
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1516) [Receiver=3.0.8]

Could not download update contents file from:
I don't think the requested build number exists.

Trying `sudo olpc-update 874' on the _XO-1.5_ I get:
Downloading contents of build 874.
Updating to version hash af5b6349911f0cdc84e57cc104a633a7

Which looks OK (though in this case looks like a bug, if build-os874 is an XO-1 build. Isn't olpc-update XO-version-aware?)
