I just answered a similar query in indiana-discuss. First, if you are using 'pkg image-update', you are not running nevada, you are running opensolaris. There is a huge difference in the way zones work between nevada and opensolaris.
To answer your question. The way zones work in opensolaris has been changed significantly for the 11.08 release. See the spec at: http://www.opensolaris.org/jive/thread.jspa?messageID=273528& There are several issues which we need to document for this release. In your case your global zone BE needs to have a UUID. If you update from an older release to a newer one, the old image-update code won't be able to assign a BE UUID, but once you are on a recent release (98 or later) then subsequent BEs will get a UUID. In your case, you can just create another BE now in order to get a usable global BE.
