Default [Q] Unable to OTA update 4.4.0 to 4.4.2 (basicdeams.apk))

So I have a Sense HTC One which I rooted (TWRP)) and s-offed to install 4.4 GPe stock. Worked absolutely fine but when I try to update the 4.4.2 OTA, TWRP stops with the error - "unexpected contents in /sys/basicdreams.apk

I tried moving the file, deleting the file, downloading a new copy and putting it in /sys - but it just wont work.

Anyone faced this problem?

You need stock recovery to flash OTA updates

Wow, so I can never get OTA updates. I need to wait for custom ROM with the update in it? Any 4.4.2 GPe stock ROM out there?

You can flash stock recovery then update then flash back. Is there a problem there? If not there are stock. Roms available. It just takes a little bit of looking.

yes - my bad entirely. Apologies, found a 4.4.2 GPe custom ROM under 20 mins of searching.
