I'm trying to upgrade an Oracle database to Oracle 19.8 using DBUA on Red Hat Linux 7. I've done a number of Oracle 19c upgrades with no issues. This time, it gets part way through then throws the following error:

ORA-20000: Could not create database link: sys-hub ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_PQ_INTERNAL", line 15 ORA-06512: at line 1

ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_PQ_INTERNAL", line 15 ORA-06512: at line 1

ORA-06512: at line 1
Oracle Server INVALID 00:13:32 Oracle Real Application Clusters OPTION OFF 00:00:00 Oracle XML Database UPGRADED 00:01:52 Datapatch 00:02:03
Final Actions 00:02:12
Post Upgrade 00:00:16

Total Upgrade Time: 00:20:03

It only gets to 49% complete before it pops up a window saying that it failed and the only options given are "Retry" and "Abort". I've opened an SR with Oracle, but they have not been at all helpful. The response is that the upgrade is complete and I just have to run utlrp 4 or 5 times within 3 minutes (I tried it, it doesn't help) and then run the final upgrade step manually followed by the time zone upgrade. I've tried that, but it all fails. What I'm looking for is what needs to be fixed before starting the upgrade so the error doesn't occur. I've tried asking for that and the response was to do the same thing that already doesn't work.

Any ideas?
