I installed cm11 nightly update 613. Install was successful and phone is working fine. I am encountering the following error on trying to install gapps by using install zip option we get on pressing volume up+power+home buttons:

file_getprop: failed to stat "/system/build.prop": No such file or directory
E: Error in /storage/sdcard1/pa_gapps-full-4.3-20131102-signed.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted

I tried installing gapps 4.4 modular full instead of 4.3 but got the same error.

I noticed one particular error, whenever I try wipe data/factory reset, everything is fine except this one thing:
Error in mounting /data!

Dont know if this is causing the trouble. I also tried usind a different sdcard(written in some thread) in case there was some problem with the current one, but same errors arise.

I am new to all of this. This is the first time I rooted my phone and installed a custom ROM so please provide a solution in simpler terms, thanks.

Phone details:
Samsung galaxy S3 gt i9300
cm-11-20140613-NIGHTLY-i9300
ClockworkMod recovery v6.0.4.5

Would that make any difference? Latest is 6.0.4.7, I am using 6.0.4.6. Most of the tutorials to install kitkat on s3 use cwm6.0.4.6

6.0.4.7 doesnt have tar for odin I guess, so 6.0.4.6 would be the latest stable cwm.

Status 7 errors are usually due to using an incompatible recovery so yes using an older CWM may be the problem, out of interest have you tried flashing cm gapps ?
