Please suggest

As far as I know, Oracle has not adopted that syntax.

This should be equivalent:
UPDATE tbl1 
SET    tbl1.amount='50.00' 
WHERE  EXISTS 
       ( 
              SELECT 1 
              FROM   tbl2 
              WHERE  tbl1.name = tbl2.name 
              AND    tbl2.state = 'NY');
