 This issue can happen while trying to apply Combo Patch or OJVM PSU which already have a previous Combo or OJVM applied(Note would not be applicable, if already on 2017 Jan Combo or OJVM and then trying to apply 2017 April Combo or OJVM) .

In this use case an example of July 2016 Combo Patched database is selected.
