So here it goes..
My Nexus 5 keeps telling me I have a system update to download and install, so I wait for it to download and then it tells me to install the update from CM-Hammerhead-46e2abd61c to 1f023a4eca-signed.
It shows the Install update option right below, and everything seems fine till now.
When I press this Install update button, it reboots the phone, shows me an android popped open and something indicating that there're being changes which are not shown in normal reboots ofc.
The phone reboots and start, tells me it;s optimizing apps since I use Android Run-time Cache instead of Dalvik.
Now the issue is, it's not updated at all.
It shows me the same Cyan and Android version, 4.4.2 and 46e2abd61c, and when I check for update, it shows me the same thing that I have to update from CM-Hammerhead-46e2abd61c to 1f023a4eca-signed.
I tried this like 10 times and it happens over and over again.
This is bugging me for like a day now.
Any solutions to this?

Try flashing the new bootloader (attached) in recovery, I had a similar problem when I tried to update to CM11 4.4.4. Hopefully, that should solve your problem and you should be able to update with the CMUpdater from now on.
