ORA-06550 error when exporting a database

An Oracle user asks why they may be getting an error when exporting a database.

I am trying to export a database, and I am getting an error. I understand that one of the most common causes of these errors is that I am using a higher version of the export utility compared to my RDBMS version. But this is not the case. My database version is and the exp version

EXP-00056: ORACLE error 6550 encountered
ORA-06550: line 1, column 41:
PLS-00302: component 'SET_NO_OUTLINES' must be declared
ORA-06550: line 1, column 15:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully

Thanks for your feedback.

It could be that your Data Dictionary is not set to support this higher version of export. Sign on to your database as SYS and run the @?/rdbms/admin/catexp.sql script. If that doesn't fix the problem, try rerunning @?/rdbms/admin/catalog.sql and @?/rdbms/admin/catproc.sql scripts.
