Default Error when installing OTA 4.4.2 Update. Any help would really be appreciated!

For the second time, I got an error when installing the OTA 4.4.2 update for my nexus 5. My bootloader is unlocked, I am rooted, and I am running ART runtime for full disclosure. I haven't made any mods as far as I'm aware. Any help would really be appreciated! This is the error I get when installing:

Finding update package...
Opening update package...
Verifying update package...
Installing update...
Verifying current system... "/system/app/GenieWidget.apk" has unexpected contents.
E:Error in /cache/b3d1f30762c7ba86c71a00e93a700e58b9977c41.s

Thanks!

did you flash or alter anything? cause it looks like you did. says the geniewidget is not stock.
Go back to stock on your nexus 5 using this guide: here

Tired of paying too much money for your phone plan? go prepaid!

Save money on refills for your prepaid plans: Use Callingmart

You have modified stock files. You can't do that. If you removed any stock APKs you need to re install them or use fastboot and flash the stock system.img.

You won't lose any data or anything.
Nexus 5 - AICP
T-Mobile GS3 T999L - Dandroid - GONE
ATT GS3 i-747 - Intergalactic 3.0 - GONE
HTC Inspire 4G - many different ROMs - GONE

I removed the Google news and weather system app (Geniewidget.apk) which I realize was stupid now. Can you tell me where I can find that app to install on my device? Thanks so much!

Or tell me where I can find directions on how to use fastboot to flash the stock system.img. Thanks!

I'm sure you can google it to find it, probably check in some PA GAPPS or something to find it or just google the filename and make sure it's the newer ones or it will still fail. Then just push it back to the sytem folder and you should be good.

OR

learn how to flash the system image from Google. You download the factory images then extract it to only pull out the system.IMG one. Then flash that using Fastboot.
