 Hi guys,
 Some of my websites had the permalinks broken after upgrading to 4.5.

 My webserver is NginX and the theme is iMedica.

 How I fixed:

 This file: /wp-includes/class-wp-rewrite.php
 Line: 1813: "update_option( 'rewrite_rules', '' );"

 Before 4.5 that line was "delete_option('rewrite_rules');"

 But I think when WP team changed to update_option function they missed a
 parameter, it should be:
 "update_option('rewrite_rules', $this->rules);"

 After fixing this the permalink started working again.
