I have a question regarding the put method, which i am using on an api im creating myself

My put method is set up exactly the same with the args being parsed, a query being created using those args and related to an entry with a specific id and i keep getting this response:

TypeError: get_sort_key() missing 1 required positional argument: 'ctx'

any help?

def put(self, id):
        args = self.reqparse.parse_args()
        query = BlogPostModel.Post.update(**args).where(BlogPostModel.Post.id==id)
        return (BlogPostModel.Post.get(BlogPostModel.Post.id==id), 200,
                {'Location': url_for('views.BlogPostView.post', id=id)})

My guess is that you're not passing in ctx to that method. Can't really tell without looking at your code, though. Please paste it in, in a code block (surrounded by 3 back tics ```).
