Default [Q] Stuck in Recovery, can't flash ROMs

Decided to resurrect my old Verizon GNex, and found that it will only boot to TWRP recovery. Was able to successfully sideload a ROM zip, but attempt to flash produces the following result (copied from phone screen, site won't let me link screenshot):

Formatting /system
Extracting /system
set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
E:Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard
Error flashing zip '/sdcard/'
Updating partition details...

Any ideas on how to proceed?

First copy ROM on sdcard, then wipe all except sdcard, and then try.
