solaris 9 puppet

I just started using pkgutil/csw and it works great. I'm currently
installing puppet on a few hundred unix/linux servers but have hit a
problem with my solaris 9 servers. When I issue the following:

# /opt/csw/bin/pkgutil --install puppet --yes

I get the following error:

=> Installing CSWcas-preserveconf-1.42,REV=2010.11.26 (1/37) ...
pkgadd: ERROR: attempt to process datastream failed
    - bad format in datastream table-of-contents
pkgadd: ERROR: could not process datastream from
Exiting pkgutil due to pkgadd error: 99

I've tried removing all the packages and pkgutil downloads them again, but
i get the same error. I've tried this on a few different SPARC Solaris 9
machines, and all fail at the same spot.

Any ideas?

Many Thanks,
