[AstroPy] PyFits not reading END value from header?

I've run into a small problem with pyfits. I am not sure if this is a problem or simply down to my ignorance!
I am reading in a header and table data from one file, then appending it to another. The code throws an error: IOError: Header missing END card. I can print the header and see that it is missing the End value. I have tried this on three different fits files and continually run into the same problem, this leads me to suspect that there is a subtlety that I am missing.
I am using version 2.3.1 on ubuntu 10.10
The code is something like this:
import pyfits as pf
In place of pf.update I have also tried pf.append & pf.writeto.
