Try extracting the recovery.img from the update that was downloaded in your download folder (you should be very quick in transferring the update to your known location as soon as it was downloaded or otherwise it will gets deleted the moment it found that your recovery was modified) and install the stock recovery. After that try re-downloading the update and this time it should work.

Recovery.img file can be found in the framework folder of the update. @jithumon is the guy who was successful in updating the OTA after his device was rooted and bootloader unlocked. Better, checking with him if the above method doesn't work for you.

Dont forget to hit thanks if the above solution helped.

After the update gets downloaded, you can find it in the internal or external sd card within the download folder. You have to connect it to the computer access both download folders on computer and see where it is getting downloaded when you hit update. Just after finished download, try copying the update file and copy it on your computer. Then you can extract the recovery. Just a few seconds delay in copying will delete the file from your sdcard. So careful and act quickly.

Flash using adb.
Put the recovery.img in adb folder,
Open command prompt with adb,
Connect mobile with pc in fastboot mode
Type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Check for errors...if no error, reboot & try to do update again...
