You have an error in your xpath expression, it should be:

<xpath expr="//field[@name='amount_untaxed']" position="after">
    <field name="amount_discount"/>

you could also use it like this instead of using an xpath:

<field name="amount_untaxed" position="after">

<field name="amount_discount"/>


I finally realized my xpath was wrong. Unfortunatelly I was following "Odoo Development Essentials" book which actually had a mistake and used this wrong xpath.
