So I tried to get my 4.4. Rooted gnex back to stock, unrooted and locked bootloader.

Then I tried to flash the image...zip but it gives me the error message you can see in the picture I uploaded.
Hope someone can help me

dont use fastboot update command
use the fastboot flash command for img files
and as stated above, just extract the archive, open terminal in that directory(open the folder created after "extract all" hold shift, right click in folder and choose open command prompt) then just run the flash all
I believe the fastboot update command is for installing update zip packages through fastboot and wont work for img file because it is looking for the signature in a zip file.
fastboot flash /system system.imgname should work (check to make sure though, I can't remember exactly if you need to put /system or just system...if you wanted to do one by one manually)

yea I can see now that for sure the update command from fastboot the error says "archive does not..." and img file is not archive, zips are. use flash command in place of update
