I found the workaround on usenet - comp.unix.solaris, here it is:

I had the same problem on a SunBlade-150. No idea why this is but
as a workaround, I installed the flash update from a tftp server.
Install the flash-update-Blade100-Blade150-latest in the tftpboot
and make a link with the hex encoded IP address. Populate /etc/ethers
and start the tftpd and the flash update should work. I needed it
to do a test installation of Solaris 11 Express which needs the latest
PROM version.
