ElasticSearch reports non-200 response on successful update

What is the response code when a document is updated?

AFAIK, the response code should be 200 for document update and 201 for creation.
So, for something like :

PUT index/type/doc?version=1
// body

if update is successful, then 200 should be returned, else 409 for version conflict.
(This assumes that the document already exists before the PUT is sent)

in my code i have

    response = try_update()
    if (response.code == 200):

this should result in only one update (otherwise it will get 409 response code). But, the update happened twice and response code was 200 only once.
How is this possible?
