Wildcard problem while transferring the code to Octave

folder = 'C:\Users\lenovo\Desktop\CANADA\LAB\IFL-Experiment\Target';
files = dir(folder);
images = cell(nBlocks, nTargetsPerBlock);
for i = 1:nBlocks
tempPath = strcat(folder, '\T', num2str(i));
fileFull = fullfile(tempPath, {'*.jpg'; '*.png'});
files = dir(fileFull{1});
for j = 1:nTargetsPerBlock
currentfilename = files(j).name;
fullFileName = fullfile(tempPath, currentfilename);
currentimage = imread(fullFileName);
images{i, j} = currentimage;
When I transfer this code to octave, I get the error "A(I): index out of bounds; value 1 out of bound 0". (I double checked to make sure that the folders have enough images.) Further, when I was debugging I wanted to check "dir(fileFull{1})", and I got the error "warning: dir: nonexistent directory 'C:\Users\lenovo\Desktop\CANADA\LAB\IFL-Experiment\Target\T1\*.jpg'. It seems the problem is with the wildcard. Is there anything that I can use to read all my files in the specified directory in Octave? I also would like to note that the code works perfectly fine in Matlab. Thank you.

For my this syntax is working fine (W10,x64,v4.2.0). If you really believe that this is not working, then you should go to the Octave bug-tracker.
Because this is a forum for Matlab, you should be hesitant to post questions about Octave, because they are essentially competing products. If you post questions about Octave, always use the octave tag (as you correctly did), and mention the OS and release.
