After upgrading to OPatch 13.9.4.2.13 as part of July 2023 Critical Patch Update (CPU) patching for Oracle Fusion Middleware(FMW) or Oracle WebLogic Server(WLS), the application of the WLS PSU fails with the following errors.
This is applicable to both 14.1.1 and 12.2.1.4, seen to occur on both Windows and Linux(likely other Unix based OSes), and can occur when applying the PSU directly via OPatch or using the SPB(via spbat or napply).
