Finally … it took a bit longer than expected and many people have mailed me in the past days. But Oracle Database 18.3.0 on premises available for download on Linux.
Oracle Database 18.3.0 on premises available for download on Linux
The other ports may follow soon after. I can’t give dates but you can download Oracle Database 18.3.0 on-prem for Linux now from OTN:
Follow this link to access the download location:
The download gets you the zip file but not the rpm. Those may take a couple of weeks for unknown reasons.
And the link to the documentation:
I couldn’t find it on eDelivery with a quick search but will update the location as soon as it is available there as well.

The first customer sent me a screenshot after a successful 18.3.0 upgrade today just 3.5 hours after the on-prem release went out on OTN – thanks Naveen!!! Upgrade done with
dbua -silentin 35 minutes.

See the installation details of Oracle Database 18c:
when should we expect 18.3 on premises release for IBM AIX and HPUX? From usual MOS note, it seems they were planned to similar date as Linux/Solaris/Windows release..
I was away the past two weeks relaxing and not checking email.
My last state was: it should be available soon.
But I can’t give more precise information. MOS 742060.1 is the single source of truth.
OK the MOS note has been changed recently and unfortunately the release date for non-Oracle platforms has been changed to Oct -2018 🙁
thanks for the update. I was not aware.
