I just tried that on our new Solaris 11.3 box:

	% tlmgr --version
	tlmgr revision 40844 (2016-05-03 01:46:44 +0200)
	tlmgr using installation: /usr/uumath/texlive/2016
	TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2016

	% tlmgr gui
	tlmgr: Cannot load Tk, thus the GUI cannot be started!
	The Perl/Tk module is not shipped with the TeX Live installation.
	You have to install it to get the tlmgr GUI working.
	(INC = /usr/uumath/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/scripts/texlive /usr/uumath/texlive/2016/tlpkg
	/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.12/i86pc-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.12 /usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12/i86pc-solaris-64int
	/usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12 /usr/perl5/5.12/lib/i86pc-solaris-64int /usr/perl5/5.12/lib .)

	See http://tug.org/texlive/distro.html#perltk for more details.

I got the same response on OpenIndiana (OpenIndiana Development
oi_151.1.9 X86 (powered by illumos): 17-Jan-2014).

On both Solaris 11.3 and OpenIndiana, I found the CSW repository
module pm_tk and installed it, then added /opt/csw/bin to the front of
PATH, and ran

	tlmgr gui

On both systems, a GUI window appears on my desktop.  I clicked the
"Update all installed" button on each, and both are now running
updates, with output to their original xterm windows, as well as to
the 4-line bottom of the tlmgr GUI window.
