trying to upgrade from Solaris 11.3.1 to 11.4.0 and I keep running into a dependency problem that for the life of me I can't get past.

I'm guessing it needs a package that isn't available inside the release repo (11.4.0). Maybe the package it needs to upgrade first is available in a 11.3 SRU?

I don't have a support contract so don't have access to the support repo (I'm a student and it's a lab box I am learning on).

Any ideas or suggestions?
