Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) is not currently supported by Azure Update Management.
Update Management is an important feature in Azure to patch VMs OS and currently (based on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/automation/update-management/update-mgmt-overview#clients) the following Linux distributions are supported: CentOS 6/7, RHE 6/7, SUSE 11/12 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS and 1804 .
This will be beneficial for businesses with heavy Oracle Software presence when they consider Azure as a cloud provider (AWS supports OEL for their Automated Update feature)

Official support for Oracle Linux is expected by Q2 CY’21.
