Seems there are several ORACLE_HOME in the same server.
Are all the ORACLE_HOMEs installed by the same user (including the current ORACLE_HOME= /opt/oracle/product/10g )?
If different users are used to install, did you check the read/write persmssions on the said files?

Seems there is a problem with central inventory.
I am not sure.
Enable the debug and apply the patch. Look into the logfiles for mismatch.

And raise a TAR.
