It looks to me like you didn't follow the steps to update software in
the global zone from Solaris 11 Express to Solaris first.  The procedure
for that is at:


After that, you can detach the zones, run dsconvert on them (see
/usr/lib/brand/shared/README.dsconvert after booting Solaris 11), then
attach them.  Once you are on Solaris 11, the "linked images" feature
of the packaging system will keep your global zone software and
non-global zone software in sync.  That is, you won't have to detach and
attach -u zones every time you update the global zone.
