Oracle 19.11 deinstall failed with "ERROR: oracle/rat/tfa/util/ManageTfa"

After Oracle database 19c home is applied Release Update 19.11.0.0.210420, the home cannot be de-installed anymore.

The deinstall utility will fail with errors,

Looks like something related to TFA is missing after RU 19.11 is applied.

Workaround,

Roll back RU 19.11, then re-run deinstall utility.
