We got the solution for the problem. The problem was with helper table which is used within the course of activation. An activation itself deletes all content from the table before starting - but in our case, the DELETE statement is, however, failed with some error.

Steps followed to solve the problem:

1. Login as SYSTEM.

2. Create a binary export of the table using the command: export _SYS_REPO.ACTIVATION_HELPER2 as binary into '/tmp'

this will create a directory called index in /tmp on the DB server (This can be used in future if something goes wrong).

3. Make sure that _no_ activation at all is running in the system and only while no activations are running, truncate the table using the command: truncate table _SYS_REPO.ACTIVATION_HELPER2;
