OPatch reports a conflict when applying PSU 188.8.131.52.170718 (Patch 25869659) on top of 184.108.40.206.170418 (Patch 25388793), giving the following error:
Patch [ 25869659 ] conflict with patch(es) [ 25388793 ] in the Oracle Home.
If you continue, patch(es) [ 25388793 ] will be rolled back and the new
Patch [ 25869659 ] will be installed.
Note: 220.127.116.11418 was released in April 2017, 18.104.22.168718 was released in July 2017. This could happen with any future PSU applied on top of 22.214.171.124418.
OPatch is supposed to see newer PSUs as a superset and report this message:
Interim patch 25869659 is superset of patch(es) 25388793 in the Oracle Home
OPatch will roll back the subset patches and apply the given patch.
