Hi all, 


   The newest Oracle patch (DB server) says this version affects:



Affected Products and Versions

Patch Availability

Oracle Database 11g Release 2, versions,


Oracle Database 11g Release 1, version




Does this mean that if I have the version this patch is not
needed ? 


If I have the version, how can I update to or

I had the idea that applying patches will update the version to the
newer but it does not seem like it. 

So if I wanted version do I need to install it from scratch?
Is there a patch that will update my version to or newer ones ?


Thanks a lot for clearing this issue for  me and please do not provide
me with some Oracle links about that issue as I'm reading the Oracle
page for few hours already and cannot find clear information about how
this works. 


I'll be grateful for few sentences explaining the issue in clear
