SharePoint 2013 TypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null referenceTypeError


You get the following error when you attempt to edit list items or list views.

TypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null referenceTypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null reference

TypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null referenceTypeError: Unable to get property ‘replace’ of undefined or null referenceTypeError: Unable to get property ‘_events’ of undefined or null reference.

Problem :

this happened after an automatic windows update installed the January 2016 SharePoint Server cumulative updates.

Solution :

First , try to run the SharePoint Products upgrade wizard on the SharePoint host with administrative rights.

Second Install the January 2016 SharePoint foundation ( I know that was not required before but for some hideous reason , this is coming back again )

You can get this download from here ..

After the installation  ,please re run the SharePoint upgrade wizard it might leave the server in an unstable state ( some components may take the update and some don’t , that is why you need to run this wizard).

Best of luck

PS: This is a deja vu  from a similar issue in 2007 …. no more comments
