I don’t belive the issue is caused from update 4.1.7 to 4.1.8 as there has been no code change which would effect this function.
However, it is possible that after the update, your code was run on a different post object, and in doing so, you spotted a bug caused by not having a ‘reference’ field.
Please read up on the update_field function in the documentation to learn more about this hidden value which is required for ACF to work
