urgent.. how to install tar file????

I downloaded a patch tar file, I un-tar the file using tar -x, it breaks
into 3 *.tarx files. I tried to use the phinstall and pkginstall utilitiy
from the install Cd,
either works.

1.) I started phinstall, i choose ‘file’, ‘source’, then choose one of the
tarx file, then hit ‘scan archives’. nothing happens…

2.) Then I started pkginstall, i choose ‘file’, ‘source’, then choose one
of the tarx file, then hit ‘scan archives’. nothing happens…

what did i do wrong? which one am I supposed to use, phinstall or
pkginstall??

Seems, you’ve got no UPGRADE license or it has expired already.

Or it may be that all those patches are already installed.
