I am trying to run some code to update a few of the question titles in a form that I am creating. I am running the code below and receiving the error: 'A location is required'. I have tried to look at documentation to fix this but have not had much luck.

Code:
from googleapiclient.discovery import build
from google.oauth2 import service_account
from googleapiclient import discovery
import requests
import time
import os
import pandas as pd

os.environ['OAUTHLIB_INSECURE_TRANSPORT'] = '1'

# from googleapiclient import discovery

# Define the scope and credentials
SCOPES = ["https://www.googleapis.com/auth/forms", "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive", "https://www.googleapis.com/auth/forms.body"]
SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE = 'credentials.json' # Replace with the actual path to your credentials file

# Load the service account credentials
credentials = service_account.Credentials.from_service_account_file(
    SERVICE_ACCOUNT_FILE, scopes=SCOPES)

# Create a service object for the Google Forms API
form_service = discovery.build(
    'forms', 'v1',
    credentials=credentials,
    discoveryServiceUrl='https://forms.googleapis.com/$discovery/rest?version=v1',
    static_discovery=False
)

#Form Meta Data

FORM_ID = 'MYFORMIDHERE' #week 2 form

# Retrieve the current form metadata
form_metadata = form_service.forms().get(formId=FORM_ID).execute()
print(form_metadata)

# Get the form items
items = form_metadata.get('items', [])

# Prepare a batch update request to update questions
update_requests = []

# Print the current items in the form
print("Current items in the form:")
for item in items:
    print(item)

# Start from the second item to skip the 'Name' question
for index, item in enumerate(items[1:], start=1):
    if index - 1 >= len(nfl_sched_cols):
        print(f"Skipping index {index}, out of bounds for DataFrame")
        continue

    if 'title' in item and 'questionItem' in item:
        # Extract existing title and question
        existing_title = item['title']
        question_info = item['questionItem']['question']
        
        # Get the corresponding row from your DataFrame
        row = nfl_sched_cols.iloc[index - 1]
        print(f"Updating item {index}: {existing_title} with row data: {row}")

        # New title
        new_title = f"AWAY: {row['away_team'].upper()} ({row['away_record']}) VS HOME: {row['home_team'].upper()} ({row['home_record']})"
        
        # Add an update request for each item
        update_requests.append({
            "updateItem": {
                "item": {
                    "itemId": item['itemId'],
                    "title": new_title,
                    "questionItem": {
                        "question": question_info
                    }
                },
                "updateMask": "title"
            }
        })

# Print the batch update request for debugging
print("Batch update request:")
for req in update_requests:
    print(req)

# Batch update the form
if update_requests:
    batch_update_request = {
        "requests": update_requests
    }
    try:
        updated_form = form_service.forms().batchUpdate(formId=FORM_ID, body=batch_update_request).execute()
        print("Form questions updated successfully!")
    except Exception as e:
        print(f"An error occurred during batch update: {e}")
else:
    print("No items found to update.")

The error I am receiving is as follows:

An error occurred during batch update: <HttpError 400 when requesting https://forms.googleapis.com/v1/for...jRp9pWmgh7R-WJz2xCpIgCSs:batchUpdate?alt=json returned "A Location is required". Details: "A Location is required">

It points to this part of the code:

Code:
        updated_form = form_service.forms().batchUpdate(formId=FORM_ID, body=batch_update_request).execute()

I have added error handling and have been able to pin point where the code errors out but am not sure how to handle it.
