Symptoms

Scenario 1: Checking for conflicts prior to installing a Patch Set Update (PSU)

You have the following installed:

Running the OPatch command to check for conflicts with the 11.2.0.3.2 PSU (13696216), OPatch reports the 11.2.0.3.2 PSU is in conflict when it should be reporting which sub-patch of the PSU is in conflict

Where patch 14727310 is the 11.2.0.3.5 PSU. 

As it is impossible that a newer version (i.e.11.2.0.3.7) of an interim patch conflicts with an earlier version (i.e.11.2.0.3.5) sub-patch, this is clearly not a correct output from OPatch.

OPatch should have reported no conflict.
