Issues with partial updates on Data Elements using the API - 2.22

Hi Devs,
I am trying to update one attribute value for a data element via the Web API in 2.22 and there is no success - the error thrown is shown below. The syntax is in the format curl -X PATCH -d “{“attribute”: “”}” -H “Content-Type: application/json” -u user:pass http://localhost:8080/api/dataElements/uid/attribute .

This works as expected in 2.21 , has something changed in 2.22 I should be aware of? or is this a bug?

Thanks.
