Prior to 8.1, PostgreSQL adds tables missing in the FROM clause
automatically. This behaviour has been removed because it could lead
to unexpected results.

You should fix your query by using the UPDATE FROM syntax and by
having tbldishot in the FROM clause. You have several enlightening
examples in

You can also use add_missing_from = on in your postgresql.conf if you
really can't fix your query but it's not recommended.
