I think you need to use POST, not PUT.

curl -d@/tmp/a -u <admin>:<password> -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://yoursite.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/user

POST is to create a new user, which works well.  We need to update an existing user which is why we are trying to get the PUT to work.

Yes, PUT works fine too.

[ec2-user@ip-10-111-111-111 ~]$ cat /tmp/a
{ "displayName" : "Admin User" }

[ec2-user@ip-10-111-111-111 ~]$ curl -d@/tmp/a -k -u <admin>:<password> -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://yoursite.atlassian.net/jira/rest/api/2/user?username=admin

What version JIRA are you using? Have you tried escaping the @ symbol in the URL? 

PUT /rest/api/2/user?username=bob.smith%40aquera.com
