can't remove component from an issue - get array index error from API

Jira 7.1.10

I'm trying to remove a 'Merge Code' component from an issue with the endpoint:

PUT /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}

and the json data:

{'update': {'components': [{'remove': [{'name': 'Merge Code'}]}]}}


the error I keep getting back is:

"Can not deserialize instance of out of START_ARRAY token↵ at [Source: N/A; line: -1, column: -1]"


I can add the component just fine but not remove.
