Starting with Oracle Weblogic Server 12c 12.1.2,  OPatch is the utility used to apply and rollback one-off patches and Patch Set Updates (PSU).

When applying a PSU, the following error is reported where AAAAAAA is a previous PSU and BBBBBBB is the current or newer PSU:

INFO: Install area Control created with access level 0
Applying interim patch 'BBBBBB' to OH '/opt/Oracle/Middleware_12_1.3'
Verifying environment and performing prerequisite checks...

Patch [ BBBBBBb] conflict with patch(es) [ AAAAAAa ] in the Oracle Home.

To resolve patch conflicts please contact Oracle Support Services.
If you continue, patch(es) [ AAAAAA ] will be rolled back and the new Patch [ BBBBBBB ] will be installed.
