Exclamation Bootloader version discrepancy

I have an issue that prevents me from flashing new CM roms - when ever i try to flash one i get an error that includes:
assert failed: getprop ("ro bootloader") == "HHZ11k"
i have gotten around this by editing the updatescript of the rom .zip to match my bootloader version: HHZ11d

So...whats going on here? Why did my bootloader change, or did I miss an update somewhere along the way? I would like to fix this so I dont have to keep editing update scripts. Any help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I found this page: http://www.randomphantasmagoria.com/...-5/hammerhead/
so i know im behind 1 update on my bootloader
is this a big deal? should I bother updating?
if i should update, is there any way to do so without going completely back to stock?

No idea why your new new bootloader cannot be installed mate, i`d reflash the complete stock rom from here http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...sybox-t2557523. Just flash in recovery and after reboot check if the new BL is installed and flash CM11
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue
Unofficial elelinux/albinoman CM 11.0 (4.4.4) Ktoonsez KT kernel

thanks guys

im not sure why i didnt think that a bootload can just be flashed as normal - doiiiii (its been about 4 months since ive flashed anything on my device though, in my defense, so im a bit rusty)

i also had an extremely difficult time trying to find the updated bootloader and ended up using the link from @TheAtheistOtaku even though it seemed kinda sketchy to me

id expect all phones, especially the N5 to have an XDA downloads section/page with explicity labeled updates for all aspects of the phone. i think ive seen similar xda pages for other phones...

anyways i seem to be good to go now! thanks again!
