Tutorial [Q] Status 7 Error When Trying to Flash CM 11

After doing a factory reset, wiping the cache, wiping the davlik cache, formatting /system, then attempting to flash Cyanogenmod 11 (Android 4.4 KitKat), I get the following error message:

set_metadata_recursive: some changes failed
E: Error in /sdcard/cm-11-p500-ver4updated.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

I do have the latest version of ClockWorkMod recovery, I have an unlocked bootloader and my device is rooted. I searched all over the internet to find some answers, but with no avail. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated

Here's the link to the ROM I'm trying to install:
