The issue with the mentioned package “UTL_RECOMP2” OR “UTL_FILE” in Error does not have public access.


You need to assign the public access to the package coming in the error during datapatch verbose:

Login with sysdba user.

SQLPLUS / as sysdba

Grant the EXECUTE privilege to public.

grant execute on UTL_FILE to public ;

Run the utlrp.sql to compile all the invalid objects:


Rerun the datapatch -verbose command to execute.
