They are two different programs with differing bugs and features.
What's more, your avconv seems to be a tad older (it hosts a 2014
copyright), while your ffmpeg is up-to-date. You can probably go into
the respective git repos and compare commit by commit. ;-)

It's probably more useful asking on the mailing list of the program
which _doesn't_ work, instead of asking here why ffmpeg works and the
avconv not. :)
