Default Can't update after root...

I hope this is the right place to post, if not I apologize and hope that someone can point me to the right forum to ask.

So I rooted my nexus 10 when I got it a few months ago and now it tells me there is a system update. I can't install the update at all. Is there a way to do this without losing root? I don't have any custom roms installed at all, just stock with root. Your help is appreciated!

Do you have a custom recovery installed? If so download and fastboot flash the stock recovery ----> https://www.dropbox.com/s/bikq8zz2i4p3bf1/recovery.img

Should let you OTA update after that.
