Confluence REST API 500 server error using Python requests Lib

I am attempting to automate the update of Confluence pages using a Python 3.4 script. I first tested using the following cURL:

curl -E jchittum -X PUT -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{"id": "48179230","type": "page","title": "Confluence Api Test","body": {"storage": {"value": "<p> New Content </p>","representation": "storage"}},"ancestors":[{"id": "4595907","type": "page","title": "Luna Release"}],"version": {"number": 5}}' https://ouratlassianserver.com/wiki/rest/api/content/48179230 | python -mjson.tool 

This requests updated just fine, and returned the proper JSON.

When I tried to replicate it Python, I get:

{'message': 'javax.ws.rs.WebApplicationException: null', 'statusCode': 500}

When doing a GET operation, everything works fine. Only seeing this on a PUT. We use SSL for authentication

The Python 3.4 code is:

import requests

import json

confPutAddress = "https://ouratlassianserver.com/wiki/rest/api/content/48179230" 

cert = "/path/to/cert.pem"
certKey = "path/to/cert.key"

postDict =

{
"id": "48179230",
"type": "page",
"title": "Confluence Api Test",
"version": {
    "number": 6
},
"ancestors": [
     {
    "id": "4595907" 

    }
],
"type": "page",
"body": {
    "storage": {
    "value": "<p>New page data.</p>",
    "representation": "storage"
    }
},
"space": {
    'id': 1179650,
    'name': 'Luna',
    'type': 'global',
    }
}

confPUT = requests.put(postAddress, data = postDict, verify=True, cert = (cert, certKey))

print(confPUT.text)


I added space after seeing the following page: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/38379050

figured out my errors with the help of my team: 

1) convert dict to json: convDict = json.dumps(postDict)

postJSON = json.loads(convDict)

2) add headers:

headers = { "content-type" : "application/json" }

 3) set requests.put to use JSON

confPUT = requests.put(postAddress, headers = headers, json = postJSON , verify=True, cert = (cert, certKey))
