Question Solairs 9 to Solaris 10 liveupgrade issue


I started the upgrade using LiveUpgrade. I am using Solaris 10 instalation CDs (5 CDs). My server is Enterprise 3500 - SPARC.

1) lucreate -c first_disk -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t11d0s7:ufs -n second_disk
luupgrade -u -n second_disk -s /cdrom/cdrom0/s0
WARNING: <5> packages failed to install properly on boot environment <second_disk>.
WARNING: <794> additional packages must be installed on boot environment <second_disk>.

2) Inserted CD2
luupgrade -i -n second_disk -s /cdrom/cdrom0
Updating package information on boot environment <second_disk>.
ERROR: Unable to update package instance information on boot environment <second_disk>.

WARNING: <5> packages failed to install properly on boot environment <second_disk>.

The following packages failed to install correctly


3) Inserted CD3 and ran the following command and there is nothing to install.
luupgrade -i -n second_disk -s /cdrom/cdrom0

When I click next next, there is no item in the list to install. I know there are more than 700 packages to install but why the installation stopped? Do I have to install the above 5 packages to be able to install all other 700 ones?
