DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN package not present on Oracle Release 12.2.0.1.0 after Upgrade

Recently we have upgraded Database Server from Oracle Version 12.1.0.2.0 to 12.2.0.1.0.

After Upgrade we are unable to finde DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN package

SQL> select owner,object_type,object_name from dba_objects where object_name='DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN'; 

no rows selected

Because of this our script are failing with this error :

BEGIN DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN.GRANT_ADMIN_ANY_REPGROUP(userid => 'admin' ); END; 

* 
ERROR at line 1: 
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7: 
PLS-00201: identifier 'DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN.GRANT_ADMIN_ANY_REPGROUP' must be 
declared 
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7: 
PL/SQL: Statement ignored

Whereas on existing Oracle 12.1.0.2.0 version i can easily find those package:

SQL> select owner,object_type,object_name from dba_objects where object_name='DB MS_REPCAT_ADMIN'; 

OWNER 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
OBJECT_TYPE 
----------------------- 
OBJECT_NAME 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
SYS 
PACKAGE BODY 
DBMS_REPCAT_ADMIN

 

On further reading on Oracle release notes came to know that,These packages comes under advanced replication feature, which was not supported for 12.1 version but still could be used. Going forward in 12.2 these packages are completely removed and cannot be used further

Below mentioned is the Oracle link which mentioned this:

Desupport of Oracle Advanced Replication
