You cannot use a select like that.

What is it you are wanting to do?

You can do:
update tcc
 set tcc.iscalculounitario = 1
where some_column in (
select some_value
 from ta_cuenta_contable tcc
      inner join stage_ctactble_iscostounit sci on tcc.codigocuentacontable = sci.cuenta
 where tcc.idsociedad = 1    
)

or

update tcc
 set tcc.iscalculounitario = (
select some_value
 from ta_cuenta_contable tcc
      inner join stage_ctactble_iscostounit sci on tcc.codigocuentacontable = sci.cuenta
 where tcc.idsociedad = 1
)

but not the way you have it.


That said:
When I see an update and a select, I immediately think the MERGE command:

That was a quick copy/paste from your original post.

Look here:  update tcc

What table are you updating?  Just correct the update statement.

Not sure you need the inner join.

See if this also does the same thing:
update ta_cuenta_contable tcc
    set iscalculounitario = 1
  where idsociedad = 1 and
        codigocuentacontable in
        (select sci.cuenta
           from stage_ctactble_iscostounit sci where tcc.codigocuentacontable = sci.cuenta
        )
