Anthony Datri summed it up the best:

YES, I was trying to put 68020 code in a 68030!!! To confirm, I
brought the drive and the tapes to our 3/60 (68020-based) and loaded
miniroot no problem. I brought back the tape drive to the 3/80 (a
68030-based) and loaded miniroot from the 4.0.3 sun3x tapes...
I'll just have to wait until we get the sun3x 4.1.1 tapes...
