Default Problem with twrp, Lots of fail to flash

Lately I'm getting a lot of fail to flash in tarp recovery, the latest one for flo.
I have nothing spécial on it , only plain stock rooted.
Sometimes when i want to try another ROM or whatever that needs to be flashed in recovery I get a fail to flash.
I don't know why, any advice?

Wipe cache, dalvic, data, and system. Then back out to main menu. Go to reboot, recovery. When it prompts you to root, click not now. When it re boots into recovery, flash away.

I too find that when I try to flash update from 4.3 to 4.4.2 using twrp, it fails.

Is there no way to do it without wiping my data? That would be a pain!

I'm on rooted stock rom.

Make sure you are using the lateste TWRP, earlier ones tend to fail, try Philz recovery works great

I'm not sure how to update twrp. Will open its recovery screen and see if it has an update option.

What is Philz? I searched for it and found coffee shops.
