Nope. One click unroot apps don't remove all traces of root. Once you root, the only way to unroot is to flash it completely back to stock. You could waste your time trying to download the update but all it will do is detect your root and cancel.

And all (if any) bloatware
System (system directory) and phone must be exactly like you got the phone before you rooted it and did anything to it.
