Default Rooted Nexus 4 cant update to 4.4 Kitkat

i have a rooted nexus 4 with TWRP installed.
I got an OTA update on the phone which says TAP to Install Android 4.4, when i click that , it restarts the phone into TWRP and thats it....no update.
when i reboot y phone back to normal, its still on 4.3.

I want to install 4.4.2 without loosing my data. Is it possible, else i will have to install the 4.4.2 via TWRP , but install everything all over again, which i dont want to do.

i just want to install the OTA update.

Just flash the stock rom there's a few floating around here and you won't need to wipe data

OTA updates require a stock recovery and a stock rom.
