ORA-38705: Expected block size string does not match string in log header.
Cause: When the flashback log file header was read, the block size in the control file did not match the block size contained in the header.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.

Cause: An ALTER DATABASE FLASHBACK ON command failed. Other messages in the alert log describe the problem.
Action: Fix the problem and retry.
ORA-38707: Media recovery is not enabled.
Cause: An ALTER DATABASE FLASHBACK ON command failed because media recovery was not enabled.
Action: Turn on media recovery with an ALTER DATABASE ARCHIVELOG command and then retry the command.

ORA-38708: not enough space for first flashback database log file
Cause: An ALTER DATABASE FLASHBACK ON command failed because there was not enough space in the Recovery Area for the first flashback database log file.

Action: Set DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST to a location and retry.
ORA-38710: Flashback log version string is incompatible with ORACLE version string.
Cause: The flashback database log file was rejected because it appeared to be written by an incompatible version of Oracle.
