You want to update /dev/mmcblk02. OK, but not checking args here.
========= Base Rootfs Package Installation script starting =========
Package Install: Partition device is not a block special device: /dev/mmcblk02.

I think that you have to manually install the package.
I have installed a package in a different partition on the cx700 remote.
Cx700 remote is similar to X7.
I adapted the package installations for the CX700 for the x7 remote.
Maybe you can try that.

You can connect X7 with ssh.
Then you upload the package to X7 on /common/temp/ directory.
You have to extract the package with the below command.

#package -mx -a evo_x7_rmt-x.x.x.x.pkg

After the package has been extracted, you can see install.sh script like the below command.
For example, the second command of the mmcblk0p5 part installs the package on partition 5. Also, you can install different partitions when you change the last number on mmcblk0p5.

#chmod +x package_install.sh
#./package_install.sh /dev/mmcblk0p5 "$(sha512sum /common/temp/vo_x7_rmt-x.x.x.x.pkg | awk '{print $1}')"



Then, you have to same steps to install another partition.

#package -mx -a evo_x7_rmt-x.x.x.x.pkg
#chmod +x package_install.sh
#./package_install.sh /dev/mmcblk0p6 "$(sha512sum /common/temp/vo_x7_rmt-x.x.x.x.pkg | awk '{print $1}')"

When all of the steps have been done, you have to run these commands below.

#flashdbmgr --set 5 6 0 0 main //This command is required to flash the 5. partition. If the X7 cannot flash partition 5, X7 tries flash partition 6.

#reboot
