When dbms_datapump.add_file is called by command line export or datapump API, it fails with:

ORA-39006: internal error
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_ERROR", line 79
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_DATAPUMP", line 3507

In this example, the errors occurred after removing the Streams configuration and moving the database to no archivelog mode.

Running catproc.sql does not solve the issue.

This error may be raised for various exports in command line and with the Datapump API.
