I have noticed that the following packages are corrupted:
SUNWmfdev
SUWmfdm
SUNWmfman

Do they have any significant affect? Should I remove them and try to re-install? If so, how do I remove them/re-install them? I can't see them when trying
to use pkgrm...

I Dont have the pakages you mention, i have solaris 2.5, so probably there are not that important, but check the programs that are instaled by each pakage and find out what they do. if you are shure you want to remove a pakage go to the directory
/var/sadm/pkg so you can see the pakages you have and type
pkgrm <the pakage name>. be careful, in not removing somthing realy important.
