The cause was due to corrupted Installation Source files which can happen during download, copy, or ftp transfer to another server.


1. Once the Oracle installation kit has been downloaded from either OTN or Oracle Software Delivery Cloud confirm the filesizes and checksums match the values from the download site per: Note 549617.1 How To Verify The Integrity Of A Patch/Software Download?

2. If you are moving the software installation from one server to another then transfer the source using ftp/scp in binary mode and check the above values before starting the installation.
