[JAVA] Error deserializing TermSuggest

I am using the Java client in its version 8.2.0. When running my search I get a runtime error when I add the suggest and it happens when deserializing.

My code:

SearchResponse<Podcast> response = client.search(
                    s -> s.index("podcasts-test")
                            .query(q -> q.match(m -> m.field("clips.words.word")
                            .suggest(sug -> sug.text(finalQuery)
                                                            sugg -> sugg.term(t -> t.field("clips.words.word"))
                    , Podcast.class

The exception thrown:

Caused by: co.elastic.clients.json.UnexpectedJsonEventException: Unexpected JSON event 'START_ARRAY' instead of '[START_OBJECT, KEY_NAME]'

This is the petition I am trying to do with java:

GET podcasts-test/_search
  "query": {
      "match": {
        "clips.words.word": "my query"
  "explain": true,
  "suggest": {
    "suggestion": {
      "text": "my query",
      "term": {
        "field": "clips.words.word"
