[Jan 6, 2021 10:03:31 AM] [INFO]    Stack Description: java.lang.RuntimeException: Please rebuild the superset patch [31654782] to make sure it supersedes all the relevant patch(es) [31210848,31465105].


This applies to any version of Oracle when applying a CPU (Critical Patch Update) with Opatch.


Patches in conflict are shown inside the brackets of the "Following patches have conflicts: [  31465105   31654782 ]" message. The conflict needs to be resolved prior to installation of current CPU.


  1. Stop all Oracle services
  2. Uninstall patch that conflicts.
    1. opatch rollback -id 31465105
    2. The ID will need to match the one listed in brackets listed in log file.
    3. Repeat with any additional conflicting ID's listed. (This may show it's already removed. That is normal.)
  3. Install the current CPU.
  4. If necessary reinstall patch that was removed (ie. patch 31465105, or the latest OJVM patch )


Additional Information

Note that the DLP Oracle database template does not require the OJVM patch as we do not use that function.
