I have 3 replies, all of them are very helpful! Thanks! You know who
you are.

Two of the replies nailed the problems, I need to use LiveUpgrade
packages from u6 media! I removed LU packages from the server and
reinstalled from u6 media, it worked right away.

I had this problem with the lower version. (of couse, it showed a
different error message). I didn't think of it because u5 and u6 is so
close, and I did check the LU package versions and they are the same.
(well, I didn't notice the dates are different though.).

Remember to always use LU packages from new media whenever using live
upgrade... A rule of thumb with Solaris 10.
