I also got stucked with 151a5.
I have IPS packages installed from 
openindiana.org/dev/,opensolaris.org/legacy,sfe,sfe-encumbered and 
HomeunixIPS , with .pkg packages.
I had some error message updating from 151a4 to a5, but since I think I 
removed some packages it was complaining about, it was updated.

After going to 151a5, I can not longer install any IPS package and also 
upgrade to a6 can not be done.
I still have OI_151a4 and working OI_151a5 BE's and also Opensolaris 
snv_134b to upgrade from, so I can test upgrading.
