    Why do you use the Updater and are concerned about what it reports?

    This is the DNS service you are using:

    Server: resolver1.ipv6-sandbox.opendns.com 
    Address: 2620:0:ccc::2

    OpenDNS' DNSv6 service does not come with the features offered by the dashboard but is just pure recursive DNS, as documented here: https://www.opendns.com/about/innovations/ipv6/

    Therefore it does not make sense to run an Updater, because your dashboard is irrelevant with this DNS configuration.

    If you want to use your dashboard, then you must configure the following DNSv6 resolver addresses instead: 
    ::ffff:d043:dede   ::ffff:d043:dcdc   ::ffff:d043:dedc   ::ffff:d043:dcde
