Could you provide a x, y pair that reproduce this error?

I would avoid using ReplacePart.  If I understand your example

y is a ragged array: {{row}, {col0, col1}}

And you're performing the following operation: x[[row, col0]] - x[[row, col1]]

update2[x_, {{row_}, {col0_, col1_}}] := Module[{temp = x},
   temp[[row, col0]] -= temp[[row, col1]];
