Replaces column does not contain numeric data type values probably. What is the Replaces data type?

You may try following

UPDATE btn_pricing$  SET Replaces = NULL WHERE Replaces = '0'

The error occurs because an update action attempted to convert a value to an integer that cannot be converted, i.e. '49377-08120' with the dash makes it non-numeric.  

What is the data type of Replaces?  If that query is indeed the source of an error, then setting it to 0 when it's a character type means implicit conversion, and if any value in that column can't be converted to an int it will throw an error.  If so, then ... WHERE Replaces = '0' would be a better choice.

As an aside, punctuation marks such as $ in table names is not good programming practice, as it forces the developer to use square brackets [ ] surrounding the value, which is one thing to potentially forget and throw an error.
