Hi Mark!

Oracle doesn't work on Ubuntu. It works on Oracle Linux, Red Hat, CentOS and Suse, that's about it. The only way to get it running on Ubuntu is to create a Docker container on a supported Linux and then run it on Ubuntu. That may not be a bad idea, if that is what you want.

We still have two Windows 2008R2 servers....we have a plan to be off by Jan 2020, cause after that, no more security updates.... :-(

PS  And yes, plan is to replace with Linux... :-) (Probably Oracle Linux, or possibly Ubuntu)

                I was unable to download proactive BP 191015 for
       because I
                don't have an extended support. With that, Oracle
                12cR1 era is
                officially over. I recommend everyone to immediately
                upgrade to 19c, the
                last version in the 12c series of products.
