Unfortunately you did not post which Sun you want to update. I own some
Sparcstations and Ultras. As far as I remember I can update my machines by
starting a Solaris installation - this should check the OBP version and
update if necessary. Maybe I'm wrong, didn't do that for a while.

You can download Solaris for free.
