ORA-31633: unable to create master table "SYSTEM.NIGHTLY_EXPORT"
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SYS_ERROR", line 95
ORA-06512: at "SYS.KUPV$FT", line 1020
ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object

This error comes when expdp job with the specified parameter job_name is already existing. It could be the case 1) expdp job is attempted to start with given job_name while expdp job with the same job_name is already running 2) expdp job with given job_name is currently not executing but it was previously stopped or cancelled.

Remedy: Verify from querying DBA_DATAPUMP_JOBS that job with specified job_name is not running then drop the table SYSTEM.NIGHTLY_EXPORT as in given example.
