    unable to update a package

    VinayKumar14

      I am trying to update a package for example archiver/gnu-tar based on dry run I got after running pkg update -nv , but its giving me error.

       

      When I executed 'pkg update -nv' , I got this for package archiver/gnu-tar  :

       

        archiver/gnu-tar

          1.23,5.11-0.151.0.1:20101105T053308Z -> 1.26,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.537:20111019T091116Z

       

      That means version on my system is 1.23,5.11-0.151.0.1:20101105T053308Z and latest available is 1.26,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.537:20111019T091116Z .

       

      So, I ran below command to install this :

      pkg update archiver/gnu-tar@1.26,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.537:20111019T091116Z

       

      I got below message for this command :

       

      pkg update: No matching version of archiver/gnu-tar can be installed:

        Reject:  pkg://solaris/archiver/gnu-tar@1.26,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.537:20111019T091116Z

        Reason:  This version is excluded by installed incorporation pkg://solaris/consolidation/sfw/sfw-incorporation@0.5.11,5.11-0.151.0.1:20101105T053414Z

       

       

      Does anybody know what does it mean?  If version 1.26,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.537:20111019T091116Z is excluded , why does it appear in dry run of 'pkg update'.

       

      Thanks
