This was previously released as a one off patch at the beginning of August. If you installed the one off patch and ran the Geocode Upgrade Manager before applying End of Year Phase 1, then you do not need to perform this step again. Please refer to the 2018 Annual Geocode Readme available on My Oracle Support for your applicable release for complete details.
