    what do you get back by this select?

    <b><i>select comp_id, version, status from dba_registry;</i></b>

      When you apply the 30+ one off patches you should unzip them to a patch directory and then apply then all together with "opatch napply directory_name"

      Applying each patch individually will take a long time and result in several relinks of the Oracle executable. Applying them together (with the napply command) will allow them go much faster, with a single relink.

    From the details provided by you, it doesn't seem that oracle is installed in this particluar ORACLE_HOME. Even SQLPLUS is pointing to oracle, that means software not installed in the present oracle_home!

    Reinstalltion of the software and running the script for this upgrade shouldn't create any issue.
