Probably that you login as an administrator of some sort to do this, perhaps root, though I think Solaris allows more finely controlled roles than "ordinary user" and "root".

There is no root user on Solaris 11 (in the default installation).
The user account created at installation time has sudo privileges.
Try this:

Code:
sudo pkg install Solaris-desktop

With the correct package name (all lowercase), that should be better:

Code:
sudo pkg install solaris-desktop
