You need stock kernel, stock recovery and absolutely no changes in /system partition including root.
Oh, just to be precise - you can actually receive an update if you┤re not fully stock but you won┤t be able to apply it.

Edit: Philz recovery and root can be actually in place, tested that today.
Device: Moto G XT1032 bought from Amazon.de
Current ROM: GPE 4.4.4
Previous ROMs: almost every stock firmware for XT1032 you can think of
Workflow: 1. read - 2. think - 3. try - 4. goto 1

Useful info: How to restore stock firmware

When flashing OTA updates of stock firmwares:
1. root is not an obstacle 2. XPosed is not an obstacle 3. use stock recovery or Philz recovery only
