Unable install Software collection on fresh/clean Oracle Linux 7

_Dima_Apr 3 2022

I have read following documents:
Oracle® Linux Software Collection Library for Oracle Linux 7 (0 Bytes) Quick Start — Software Collections (0 Bytes)
Installed fresh/clean Oracle Linux 7.6 on VirtualBox.

Run following commands:

Become root:
sudo -i

Install the software collection library utility:

yum install -y oraclelinux-release-el7
yum-config-manager --enable software_collections
yum-config-manager --enable ol7_latest ol7_optional_latest
yum install -y scl-utils

It turned out that scl-utils already pre-installed.

Install software collection
yum install rh-python35
I got following feedback:

[root@localhost ~]# yum install rh-python35

Loaded plugins: langpacks, ulninfo

No package rh-python35 available.

Error: Nothing to do

I have tried to install about 10 different software collections, no success.
Why I cannot install any Software collection?
