Parallel to going through support, I thought I'd post here, as maybe someone else had a similar issue.

We're trying to upgrade a customer site from 12.0.6 to v13.
We have CA Hotfix 17 installed on the 12.0.6.

After runnning quite some time, fails with this exception:

--- Nested Exception ---
/home/niku/clarityv13/install-packages/12.1.1/upgrade-repack. exec returned: 1

Line 606 in referenced XML file install.xml :
<if property="language" isEmpty="true">
<exec executable="${install.dir}/bin/nikuadmin${script.suffix}" failonerror="true">
<arg line="db install -console"/>

Attempt to call command manually, to get more information:
./nikuadmin db install -console


./nikuadmin db install -consolecd

DBDriver failed to install!

Has anyone seen (and solved :-) ) similar problems? The " 'timestamp(6)' is not a valid DataType" error message does not make sense to me -- it should be valid according to Oracle's data type docs.

Appreciate any pointers,
