setup-alpine fails to get sfdisk because `apk update` fails with no reason (vbox) [virt/standard]
setup-alpine fails at step of partitioning disk. sfdisk can't be downloaded as
apk update and
apk add fail for no reason.
manual download with wget from several selected mirrors works with no error.
apk update surprisingly fails to identify packages index.
see example screenshots for evidence.

apk update failure and
images tried (to name a few):
instructions followed: https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/Installation#Installation_Handbook
i expect given the network is intact that setup process should go without issues. i appreciate all the work done by alpine team, but this is very frustrating.
Extended ISO http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v3.11/releases/x86_64/alpine-extended-3.11.3-x86_64.iso installed successfully and
apk update on it works fine, but virt/standard ISOs are still obviously broken.
Same workaround as above doesn't help with alpine/v3.10.
apk add and
apk update fail with error:
# apk update fetch http://mirrors.gigenet.com/alpinelinux/v3.10/main/x86_64/APKINDEX.tar.gz ERROR: http://mirrors.gigenet.com/alpinelinux/v3.10/main: remote server returned error (try 'apk update') v3.10.4-50-ga03c8d1518 [http://mirrors.gigenet.com/alpinelinux/v3.10/main] 1 errors; 5769 distinct packages available
