Those "entires" are old, except, of course, the first,is it possible to remove them with the pkg command?

  • Only the one with "i" in the IFO column is installed.

They're not all installed. To "remove" them, don't use the -af flag to pkg list.

From the Solaris pkg man page:

...

list [-Hafnsuv] [-g path_or_uri ...] [--no-refresh] [pkg_fmri_pattern ...]

...

With -f and -a, list all versions of all packages for all variants regardless of incorporation constraints or installed state. ...

Because you're using the -af flags, you're seeing every version available from any of your publishers.
