Amazon RDS for Oracle now supports the October 2020 Patch Set Updates (PSU) for Oracle Database Enterprise Edition. The October 2020 PSU for Oracle Database Standard Edition and Standard Edition One will be launched in early 2021. 

The October 2020 PSU for Oracle Database 12.1, and the October 2020 Release Update (RU) for Oracle Database 12.2, 18c, and 19c were launched on November 24, 2020.
