User Management REST API is not working

Hi there,

we need to update 150+ user email addresses. Using User Management REST API should do the work. Reading them out is no problem at all. Changing / writing them turns out to be a task. We get an error message:

Are there any workarounds out there or alternatives for solving this task?

Tips are very much appreciated.
