Besides the fact that your Oracle version is ancient (you probably have some reason not to upgrade) can you clarify whether updates to other tables are working or not? And when did this issue start? Did anything change that needs to be mentioned?

The ORA-600 is one of those errors that pretty much needs Oracle Support to diagnose.  Since 8i has LONG been desupported, you may be out of luck.

Since you killed a session that was in the middle of an update statement you may have some data, block or table corruption.

I would first try to see if you can create a new table copy:
create table my_table_bkup as select * from my_table;

Verify the data is all there (a couple of minus queries).  Then try the update on the new table.

If all that works, then it is probably some corruption somewhere.

I would look at a permanent recreation of the table.

I have created a new copy of that table and it works fine, Do u think dropping the table and import a new backup file will solve the issue ?

If you created a copy like slightwv above is suggesting then all data is already in the copy of your table. Then there would be no need to import from backup. Why would you want to import from backup?

>>and it works fine

Did you verify ALL the data is 100% accurate between the tables?

If so, I agree that restoring from a backup probably isn't necessary.

There are a couple of things you can do but it would be based on your database and how things are set up:

1:  Truncate the current table and insert all the data back into it.
2:  drop the current table and rename the new one to the original name.

There are potential issues with either.

Constraints and indexes are the main issues.  Dropping the table would require rebuilding all the indexes and constraints.  Truncating might be bad if there are foreign key constraints on the table.

If the data is good in a copy of the table, then I suspect indexes.  We had problems with indexes generating ORA-00600 errors back in 8i.  One of the indexes is corrupt on that table.  It is most likely the one with object id 6731 (check in DBA_OBJECTS), but I would recommend dropping and recreating all the indexes on that table.

Excellent suggestion!  I forgot about indexes.

Yes, try a rebuild before all the trouble of a copy/rename of tables.
