Sorry, do you mean the Xen user-land tools (like xl, xentop, qemu-dm,
and so on), or do you mean xen-tools, the confusingly-named package
designed to make it easy to generate Xen guest images and
corresponding config scripts[1]?

The Xen userspace tools are linked to the running Xen hypervisor
version.  It looks like you may have Xen hypervisor 4.6, but not have
the Xen 4.6 tools, but only the Xen 4.8 tools.

My guess would be either reboot into Xen 4.8, or install xen-utils-4.6.

CC'ing Ian Jackson, who has been doing work on the Debian Xen package,
in case I've said something wrong and/or you need further help.
