Default How do i OTA with root

I have just had a message telling me to update to 10g but once its downloaded and ready to flash it tells me my phone is rooted and wont upgrade. I have plugged my phone into LG suite on my pc and it tells me that im running the latest version when its not.
How do i OTA update now my phone is rooted?

Im using towelroot and on on 3UK 10a.

I got the same OTA two days ago 10g, live in Norway and first OTA ever, upgrade went fine without issues despite root (purpledrake)
Says it optimizes power consumption/battery, still to be seen!

Strange, my free G3 /32Gb with Purple Root rejects to update via OTA due to root.
Tried with unroot with the option in SuperSU, no chance to get rid of the message:

"Could not update because you seems to have your device rooted"

Went through the whole process (30 Minutes or even more) with PC Suite and "Repair update errors" to get the new version (which killed the root access)
