You could check for some usual pitfalls:

- wrong permissions for directories or files with package functions

- binary functions (as __bfgsmin) not compiled for new Octave version

These can usually be mended by reinstallation of the package, maybe
after checking the permissions within the package if you installed
from a directory.

If this does not help, you should give more information to enable
others to help you.
