Postgres query returns invalid input syntax while updating jsonb column fields


I was trying to update fields of a jsonb column with a Postgres query, but I kept getting an error for invalid input syntax. However, a similar query worked on my local Postgres client. Turning off the smart-substitution setting resolved the error.
