Those aren't zips...

To the OP, OTA updates don't wipe your internal storage. Just install 4.4 stock and wait for those.

Default stock file

As far as I've been able to research it... Installing the stock 4.4.x from a 4.3 rom will require a complete erasure of the data on your internal storage.

My choice is a Titanium backup and transferring the files to a safe place. Followed by a nandroid backup - again stored off-phone it is perhaps belt and suspenders level, but when it hits the fan.. that is when you will be really happy you made the effort.

I did the factory rom 4.41 using fastboot.. and waited for the OTA to 4.4.2 --(file from https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images‎)

Coming from a custom rom, it would probably be a good idea to do a system data wipe. Otherwise, on stock 4.3, you could just dirty flash and wipe the dalvik cache.
