ORA-28817 when attempting to manage instance settings in 4.2

As with some others reporting, I got the dreaded ORA-28817 when attempting to manage the instance settings.

I upgraded from 4.1 to 4.2 a few months back. After reading some of the comments here, I tried applying the Patch Release which claims to fix it - but alas - no joy - still can't manage the instance settings.

I can also get the error via the command line:
exec apex_instance_admin.set_parameter('WALLET_PWD',Null);
BEGIN apex_instance_admin.set_parameter('WALLET_PWD',Null); END;
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-28817: PL/SQL function returned an error.
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_CRYPTO_FFI", line 67
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_CRYPTO", line 44
ORA-06512: at "APEX_040200.WWV_FLOW_CRYPTO", line 89
ORA-06512: at "APEX_040200.WWV_FLOW_SECURITY", line 1931
ORA-06512: at "APEX_040200.WWV_FLOW_INSTANCE_ADMIN", line 197
ORA-06512: at line 1
I am not sure what else to try....
