Not a problem, here it is:

  1. Backup database
  2. Shutdown all instances, using sqlplus or srvctl, depending on the configuration.
  3. Apply patches.
  4. Startup database and do the following sqlplus / as sysdba _at_?/rdbms/admin/catbundle psu apply
  5. Check the log file for errors and the database for the invalid objects.
  6. Shut down the database
  7. Restore the backup.
