      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create incorrect API call to host.massupdate method
        {
          "hosts":["10337"]
        }
        

        Notice, only string is given, not object

      Observe 1:
      Missleading API response:

        "error": {
          "code": -32500,
          "message": "Application error.",
          "data": "You do not have permission to perform this operation."
        },
      

      And runtime error in log file.

      PHP Warning:  Illegal string offset 'hostid' in /var/www/html/feature/ZBXNEXT-2156-5.1/ui/include/classes/api/services/CHost.php on line 976"
      

      Also, try such API request:

      {
        "hosts":["text"]
      }
      

      Then observe more errors in log file - few of them relates to failed DB query

      Expected:

      1. Correct error message.
      2. No runtime errors.

      Only tested in 5.2.0alpha1 please check earlier versions.
