Note:

When making changes to all of them, the 'finished' works as expected. The error only occurs when not all of the edited ORs are actually updated.

To reproduce:

* Go to Order Release, do an open search
* Mark the first five releases, click 'Edit'
* Click 'Next', make whatever change to that release, click 'finished' - you see the error.
* Edit them again
* make some change to each one (like give them a name or something), click 'finished' in the end - the changes are saved as expected.
