You are passing 3 variables (using ,,)  and defined 2 in your query :lv.

You can't pass however the databaselink name as a bind variable, so you must include it in the query text.

Try
lv_dbname := ' 'LINK_ABCDEF ';
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE
            'select  oldest_backup_time,newest_backup_time  into :lv_oldest, :lv_newest from '
            || lv_dbname
            || '.'
            || 'rc_backup_set_summary'
            || '@'
            || lv_dbname
            USING lv_oldest,lv_newest;

Ooops, miss-read the code.

Actually it should be:
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE
       'SELECT  oldest_backup_time, newest_backup_time 
          FROM '|| lv_dbname  || '.rc_backup_set_summary@LINK_ABCDEF '
          INTO lv_oldest, lv_newest;

            || lv_dbname
            || '.'
            || 'rc_backup_set_summary'
            || '@'
            || 'LINK_ABCDEF '

1) Your query does not have and conditions and therefore will none of the posted variations will work unless the table has ONE row.

2) In the EXECUTE IMMEDIATE statement, the "USING" part is to supply bind variable values to the query and the "INTO" part is to receive results from the query.

3) Other than variables, in order to supply information that builds the query and which is contained in variables (like schema and/or table name and/or database link. etc...), you must CONCATENATE these variables to the query  text.
