The new Chilean rules have been in tzdata since release 2018f (dated 
2018-10-18). Although I don't understand the format of the messages that you 
reported, evidently the new Chilean rules haven't propagated into your system. 
Most likely this is because your version of tzupdater doesn't fully grok the 
tzdata format and you need to use what is called "rearguard" format. Please see:



You might want to let Oracle know that they really should publish a fixed 
version of their tool.
