How did you do the upgrade? With what tool? From what process or log file does the error originate?
Did the upgrade actually completed? If so, what are the status of the components in DBA_REGISTRY?
Nevertheless, I would recommend you next time to use AutoUpgrade for your database upgrade. That is our preferred tool, and it gets constantly updated and you can always get the latest version via My Oracle Support. There are more info here:
On our blog we have a presentation called "How to diagnose upgrade issues". That might be worth a look:
thank you for your reply.
We are running the manual upgrade process using the MOS Doc ID 1503653.1
The error occrued when executing the below step in that document :
$ORACLE_HOME/perl/bin/perl $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/catcon.pl -n 2 -e -b preupgrade_fixups /mypath /mypath/preupgradepreupgrade_fixups.sql
Just want to confirm prior to moving forward with the rest of the steps in that document.
thanks for all the help.
Without knowing which of the preupgrade fixups that have the problem and whether the rest of them succeeded, my immediate response would be to stop, and ask support for further assistance.
However, I would also advise you to retry the upgrade using the new AutoUpgrade tool. That way, you can be absolutely sure that all commands are being executed correctly, and you will get a clear message whether or not, there is something wrong. You can get more info on the AutoUpgrade tool and how to use it from the quick start guide referenced above.
