Error when trying to update a sharepoint list

When I try to update a sharepoint list (which has about 5k items) I have this error in some items. Does anyone know what can it be?

{

 "status": 400,
  "message": "The type SP.ListItemEntityCollection does not support HTTP PATCH method.\r\nclientRequestId: 8f0c408d-24cd-4e15-803d-3460780851aa\r\nserviceRequestId: 27d1bf9f-704a-0000-b7cf-3c9b6f1350d4",
  "source""https://****************************/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('PeopleSoft')/items()",
  "errors": [
    "-1",
    "Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.InvalidClientQueryException"
  ]
}
 
PS: When I try with a smaller test list, about 50 lines long, the flow works perfectly.
 
 See my function of updating item:::::

Hi @carudev 

In the "Update item rest" action are you using a method "POST" or a "PATCH"? (in the screenshot I see a POST operation).

Could you try using "PATCH"?

Hii!
I am using the POST method, following the automate documentation here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/working-with-lists-and-list-items-with-re...

I tried to use the PATCH method and it doesn't work either.

I realized that this failure occurs only in some random items, (I have a total of 6k items to update in the sharepoint), so I created an error handle so that when the item fails, it sends me an email, informing me which item could not be updated. It is not the best solution, but at least it allows the flow to run fully. 😕

Thank you! 😄
