I found this guide for upgrade. After the upgrade, can I delete safely the old DB product dir /var/oracle/app/oracle/product/12.1.0 ?

  • Isn't there an official description for the upgrade steps? – dezso May 27 '15 at 4:51

Yes, but do not simply delete it - deinstall it properly: http://docs.oracle.com/database/121/LADBI/remove_oracle_sw.htm#LADBI7824

Run $ORACLE_HOME/deinstall/deinstall and follow the instructions.
