The below error occured while doing a full database restore to the test system. I also checked that I restored most recent control file and the backup sets are cataloged. I tried the process two times but still the same error.

I reset the database to the previous incarnation and run the restore & recovery again.
SQL> select INCARNATION#, RESETLOGS_TIME from v$database_incarnation order by RESETLOGS_TIME desc;
rman target /
RMAN> reset database to incarnation 1;
RMAN> restore database;
After reseting the database to the previous incarnation, restore operation completed successfully.
