Purchase Order API Update Request Sub. cannot be empty

We are using the rest api to create and update purchase orders. We can create them ok, but when we need to update a line we get semi-random errors. One of which is

"Subaccount": {
"error": "'Sub.' cannot be empty."

Our request does include a valid value for the account and subaccount and in the item we have the same for the defaults. 

If anyone has any experience with the api, could you please help point us in the right direction?

Thank you, we reviewed all the underlying defaults as referenced in that post and they are all set. I do believe you’re on the right track and that there is a something not set that is required and the error message is not specific enough to direct us to the missing link on the PO line item we are attempting to update.
