When you try to sort nodes in the content section the sort order of the nodes did not get updated, and in the log file you will find this error this is both for list view and non-list view.

2017-11-15 12:16:28,945 [P5272/D7/T32] ERROR umbraco.presentation.webservices.nodeSorter - Could not update content sort order System.Reflection.AmbiguousMatchException: Could not automatically find the event name, the event name will need to be explicitly registered for this event definition. Error: Ambiguous at Umbraco.Core.Events.EventDefinitionBase..ctor(Object sender, Object args, String eventName) at Umbraco.Core.Events.EventDefinition2..ctor(TypedEventHandler2 trackedEvent, TSender sender, TEventArgs args, String eventName) at Umbraco.Core.Events.ScopeEventDispatcherBase.Dispatch[TSender,TArgs](TypedEventHandler`2 eventHandler, TSender sender, TArgs args, String eventName) at Umbraco.Core.Services.ContentService.Sort(Int32[] ids, Int32 userId, Boolean raiseEvents) at umbraco.presentation.webservices.nodeSorter.SortContent(String[] ids, Int32 parentId)

What did you expect to happen?

I expect that the sort order will be updated for the nodes.

What actually happened?

Nothing happens with the sorting, but we get the above error in the log file.

This was already fixed in https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/commit/69a42e26a9ddfeeab3f2026bffb3a294b5050fd9

However, for some reason we're still looking into, the 7.7.5 release was built from the commit previous to this commit, so this fix was not included in the final build.
