http://support.esri.com/en/downloads/patches-servicepacks/list?productid=66&productVersions=10.2.2&categoryTypes=8 Here I have fouund a list of patches and service packs. First of all whats the difference between patches and Service Packs. Does any patch of 10.2.2 performs the upgrade, or I have to install all the patches ?

  • generally speaking a patch fixes a specific or set of specific issues. a service pack rolls up all patches and bug fixes into one install. I suggest the service pack – Brad Nesom Jan 21 '15 at 22:05

The 10.2.2 release is a full install, not just a service pack (it need not be applied on top of 10.2 or 10.2.1; it should apply over an existing install, though you generally want to be extra-rigorous about your backups, just in case there are issues).

I'd recommend applying the 10.2.2 release, then all the relevant patches in chronological order (reverse of the order in the link you provided). By my count, 19 patches have been released:

  1. ArcGIS 10.2 - 10.2.2 for Desktop Print Dialog Hang Patch
  2. ArcGIS 10.2.2 for (Desktop/Engine/Server) Oracle Geodatabase Object Schema Update and Editing Patch

  4. ArcGIS 10.2.2 for (Desktop, Engine, Server) Update GeoPackage Support for the OGC Standard Version 1
  5. ArcGIS 10.2.2 Workflow Manager for Desktop Multi Layer Groupings and TOC Refresh Patch
  6. ArcGIS 10.2.2 for (Desktop, Engine, Server) Spatial Reference Consistency Patch

  19. ArcGIS 'Oracle Critical Patch Update - October 2014' Connection Issue Patch

You can skip those that don't apply to your deployment, though if you change the deployment to need something, you may need to reapply the full cascade.
