Upgrading Oracle Apps (EBS) to 12.2 ? OPatch stopped with error “oracle.as.common.clone,, higher version found

One of upgrade trainee from our previous batch, hitting issue “oracle.as.common.clone,, higher version found” while applying Latest AD and TXK patches  ‘20642039’ in Oracle E-Business 12.2.


1. Applying the Latest AD and TXK patches  ‘20642039‘ in Oracle E-Business 12.2 as

export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/oracle/PROD122/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common 

Note: Here /u01/oracle/PROD122 is ORACLE_BASE where Oracle EBS 12.2 is installed and as patch is for ORACLE COMMON Home in Fusion Middleware we set ORACLE_HOME accordingly 

export PATH=/u01/oracle/PROD122/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common/OPatch:$PATH

cd $PATCH_TOP/20642039

opatch apply

And opatch stopped with below messages

Since version is already so this patch is not applicable. In this case there is another patch mentioned in the DOC ID 1903052.1
The latest AD-TXK codelevel has a dependency on Oracle Fusion Middleware:

So we have applied the patch 20756887 and It completed successfully.

If you are applying Delta 6 to a system on a pre-Delta 5 AD-TXK codelevel, you must apply the Oracle Fusion Middleware patch before proceeding with the AD and TXK patches. If you do not apply this patch, application of the TXK patch will fail.
