This is just a guess, but looking at the docs for / o (below) it seems
like you need a non-numerical prefix argument. This worked correctly for
me with C-u / o.  (Keep in mind that I could be way off here, but worth
a try.)

"/ o runs the command gnus-summary-insert-old-articles (found in
gnus-summary-mode-map), which is an interactive compiled Lisp function
in ‘gnus-sum.el’.

It is bound to / o, <menu-bar> <Gnus> <See old articles>.

(gnus-summary-insert-old-articles &optional ALL)

Insert all old articles in this group.
If ALL is non-nil, already read articles become readable.
If ALL is a number, fetch this number of articles."
