Apply Patch 31088341 before Upgrade to prevent ORA-1403

As I learned from a customer this week, this patch is a must have when you use Partitioning and you attempt to upgrade to Oracle 19.9.0 or earlier. So please apply patch 31088341 before Upgrade to prevent ORA-1403 happening.

What is the issue?

This applies to all 19c upgrades at least until 19.9.0. You may see this error pattern in catupgrd0.log:

==Error from catupgrd0.log===

At first, your database is supposed to work fine. Hence, no panic. But you may get issues when you try to export a multi-value list partitioned table.

  • ORA 1403 during upgrade script for multi column list partitioned tables with pkey of either char/binary data types.

This fix will exchange the a18.sql in ?/rdbms/admin. It is tagged as Bug 31088341 – A18.SQL NEEDS CHANGES IN THE REPAIR TABPART$ PORTION ADDED AS PART OF FIX#28757685.

The issue is a follow-up to Bug 30084975 – 19C UPGRADE FAILS WITH ERROR “ORA-01403: NO DATA FOUND” which is a follow-up to an incorrect fixup script delivered for Bug 28757685 – PDML:ORA-14308 WHEN AUTO LIST PARTITIONED TABLE DBMS_METADATA.GET_DDL GENERATED DDL.

How to prevent it?

At least until Oracle Database RU 19.9.0 you need to apply this patch for Bug 31088341 which exchanges the a18.sql file in ?/rdbms/admin. Hopefully in a future RU, this fix will be included. I will update the blog post then.
