I have an MDK S4 and have been flashing custom roms all along.

It had been like a whole week since my last flash so I downloaded Chaos rom and wiped my data and went to install it just like I've done 100 times before with other roms. When I swipped on install it came up with a red "Failed" message. I thought this was odd, but I've had it happen before with corrupt/incomplete/errored downloads.

Since I had already wiped I went to go do a fresh install of the basic NG2 rom I was on prior to wiping and got another "Failed" message.

Flashed my recovery image (which thankfully worked.) I repeated the whole wiping/attempting to flash/restoring my recovery image cycle again hoping it would work the second time around... which it left me back on my recovery image.

Not sure what went wrong. Tried to update TWRP to a newer version through goo manager, but that doesn't seem to be working either.

Don't use goo manager to get twrp from. This is more than likely your problem.

Get it from and use flashify to flash latest img

Boot into twrp wipe cache and dalvik and flash the latest supersu here
