EM 13c: Do not change OPatch

In previous versions, it was “best practice” to always get the most current opatch (patch 6880880) from MOS. Unfortunately, with Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c, this is problematic at the moment. The reason is that OMS 13.1 is shipped with OPatch 13.6:

[oracle@em13c ~]$ opatch version
OPatch Version:
OPatch succeeded.

Currently, OPatch 13.6 is not available in MOS. Only OUI Nextgen 13.2 is available, but not opatch 13.6. Do not overwrite OPatch 13.6 with OUI Nextgen 13.2 because it will break it.
