Solaris 11 Express with support repository updates fails to upgrade to Solaris 11 (Doc ID 1375730.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 01, 2019

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11 11/11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After changing the repository from the support repository to the release repository attempting to upgrade to Solaris 11 from Solaris 11 Express (with support repository updates) fails.


After repointing pkg(1M) to the new release repository we see the following:

# pkg update pkg:/package/pkg
No updates available for this image.
# pkg image-update
Creating Plan \
pkg update: No solution was found to satisfy constraints
Plan Creation: Package solver has not found a solution to update to latest available versions.
This may indicate an overly constrained set of packages are installed.


The change that triggers this error is switching to the release repository before upgrading to SRU#13.
