How to update component in user collection

System Information

Hi there, I’m trying to updata a component called “billingAddress” within my user collection. I have set up a route to be able to enable a user to update their own data based on this video: Updating Your Own User Info in Strapi - YouTube

I’m able to update user data but once I need to update data in the component I’m not able to update any data.

This is what my extension looks like on the strapi backend:

module.exports = (plugin) => {
    plugin.controllers.user.updateMe = async (ctx) => {
        if (!ctx.state.user || !ctx.state.user.id) {
            return ctx.response.status = 401;
        }
        await strapi.query('plugin::users-permissions.user').update({
            where: { id: ctx.state.user.id },
            data: ctx.request.body,
        }).then((res) => {
            ctx.response.status = 200;
        })
    }

    plugin.routes['content-api'].routes.push(
        {
            method: "PUT",
            path: "/user/me",
            handler: "user.updateMe",
            config: {
                prefix: "",
                policies: []
            }
        }
    )

    return plugin;
}

This is the Axios put request I’m using to update the user data from the frontend:

const handleUpdateBillingAddress = () => {
        axios.put('http://localhost:1337/api/user/me', {
            billingAddress: {
                zipCode: "2840",
                id: 1,
                firstName: "Tim",
                lastName: "kerrem",
                company: "mycompany",
                address1: "mystreet 42",
                address2: null,
                city: null,
                country: "Belgium",
                provinceOrState: null,
                zipCode: null,
                phone: "+31412412412",
                email: null
            }
        },

        {
            headers: {
                'authorization': `Bearer ${jwt}`,
                'Content-Type': 'application/json'
            },
            },
        )
        .then(response => {     
            console.log(response)
            notification.open({
                type: 'success',
                message: 'Success!',
                description:'Your user information has been updated',
                });
            })
        .catch(error => {
            console.log(error);
            console.log('An error occurred:', error.response);
            notification.open({
                type: 'error',
                message: 'Something went wrong',
                description:'Some of your credentials are not valid',
                });
        });
    }

Would be really helpful if someone could advise me on how to update the component

Instead of strapi.query.update use strapi.entityService.update
Example :-

    await strapi.entityService.update('plugin::users-permissions.user', ctx.state.user.id, {
      data: ctx.request.body
    }).then((res)=>{
      ctx.response.status = 200;
      ctx.response.body = res
    })
