[bash install]$

2.2 Check OPatch version

[oracle install]$ $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory | grep version
Oracle Interim Patch Installer version 12.1.0.1.0
OPatch version    : 12.1.0.1.0
OUI version       : 12.1.0.1.0

2.3 Upgrade OPatch

[oracle install]$ cp p6880880_121010_Linux-x86-64.zip $ORACLE_HOME
[oracle install]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME
[oracle dbhome_1]$ mv OPatch OPatch.old
[oracle dbhome_1]$ unzip p6880880_121010_Linux-x86-64.zip

If you rollback an online patch before you apply the psu you may get an error during datapatch:

This is a problem with directories created during patching …
To solve this issue you can workaround with the following

Check parameter:

SELECT a.ksppinm “Parameter”,
b.ksppstvl “Session Value”,
c.ksppstvl “Instance Value”
FROM x$ksppi a,
x$ksppcv b,
x$ksppsv c
WHERE a.indx = b.indx
AND a.indx = c.indx
AND a.ksppinm LIKE ‘/_disable_direc%’ escape ‘/’

if _disable_directory_link_check is set to FALSE I would suggest you set to TRUE and try to execute datapatch and update again. It should work now.
