The result of this query must be stored in another table
select      distinct
            CodUnico,
            RazonSocial,
            NumeroDocumento,
            CodTipoBanca,
            CodGrupo,
            CodCalificacionSBS,
            CodFeve,
            Rating,
            CodSegmentacion,
            CodEjecutivoNegocios,
            DesEjecutivoNegocios,
            LineaCredTienda
from tmp_Solicitud

 but I have a problem.
 The table where I insert the data is CodUnico primary key. Although I put in my query word is being shown distinct repeated CodUnico
 (see picture), how I can fix this??

The DISTINCT keyword applies to all the columns in your select statement, ie. all rows having distinct set of all values are returned. You need to decide some other criteria to select only one row per CodUnico.

Be careful with using that word "distinct" in Oracle queries!  There are two significant problems with it:
1. That always forces Oracle to do a sort, and depending on the number of rows returned, that can add a huge performance penalty.
2. Oracle's understanding of what "distinct" means does not always agree with what humans expect.  There are two reasons for this.  First, Oracle understands "distinct" to apply to the combination of *ALL* columns being returned (not just to the first column).  Second, if you have a date field being returned, date values in Oracle can include the time-of-day.  Depending on your settings for NLS_DATE_FORMAT, you may or may not see the time portion, so Oracle may return rows that appear to be duplicates, but in fact have a different time-of-day.

You will need to do a sub-query to first select the distinct CodUnico values but this can better be done in Oracle by using a group operator (min, max, etc.) than by actually using "distinct", then get the other values for those rows, something like this:

select      CodUnico,
            RazonSocial,
            NumeroDocumento,
            CodTipoBanca,
            CodGrupo,
            CodCalificacionSBS,
            CodFeve,
            Rating,
            CodSegmentacion,
            CodEjecutivoNegocios,
            DesEjecutivoNegocios,
            LineaCredTienda
from tmp_Solicitud ts
where (ts.CodUnico, ts.rowid) in
(select t.CodUnico, min(t.rowid) from tmp_Solicitud t
 group by t.CodUnico);
