  •  If you are upgrading from 11.2.0.1 or 11.1.0.6, then you must first upgrade to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.2).
  •  If you are upgrading from 10.2.0.2, 10.2.0.3, 10.2.0.4, or 10.1.0.5, then you must first upgrade to 10.2.0.5 or later.
  •  For release 9.2.0.8, you must first upgrade to an intermediate Oracle Database release, as follows: 9.2.0.8 -> 11.2.0.2 or 11.2.0.3 -> 12.1
