The installer has detected that you may have an Automatic Storage Management (ASM) instance improperly configured or one that was not properly cleaned up from a previous install.

I ran in to this issue when I re-install Oracle Binaries during prerequisites checking.

Problem:

The installer has detected that you may have an Automatic Storage Management (ASM) instance improperly configured or one that was not properly cleaned up from a previous install.

Solution:

You may see the recommendation by Oracle:  You must completely remove the ASM instance by deleting the entry for it from the oratab file, or you must configure it properly by ensuring that the oratab file is updated to point to a valid Oracle Home where ASM is configured.

But sometimes you need to make sure environment variables are set and old home directory has been removed.
