ORA-20001: Latest xml inventory is not loaded into table

 

SOLUTION:

first, you need to download the latest OPatch utility 12.2.0.1.14

second, the error i have faced due to that i am invoking the opatch utility outside ORACLE_HOME…… now you need copy it in your oracle home directory ( its a must ! )

cd $ORACLE_HOME
mv $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch.orig
mkdir OPatch
cd OPatch
scp -r /newopatch/OPatch/* .

a good reference is Doc ID 1602089.1
