# Solution
– Connect on the catalog database with the 12c (local) OH:

[oracle@databasesrvr dbs]$ sqlplus sys/magicpass@catalogdb as sysdba

– Then try to upgrade catalog again:

[oracle@databasesrvr dbs]$ rman target /

RMAN> upgrade catalog;
recovery catalog owner is CATALOG_MYDB
enter UPGRADE CATALOG command again to confirm catalog upgrade
RMAN> upgrade catalog;
recovery catalog upgraded to version 12.01.00.02
DBMS_RCVMAN package upgraded to version 12.01.00.02
DBMS_RCVCAT package upgraded to version 12.01.00.02.
