Are you on 100% stock MK2 unrooted? If you are on a custom ROM or have a custom recovery with root it will not install the zip as it checks to see if your phone has any modified files.

Did you delete, froze any apps that came with the phone? Did you install hotspot or anything that modified the system?

If you really want to update to kit kat then just odin mk2 .tar and do a fresh install again and just try the download again.

You won't lose your data. A stock tar install does not erase data unless you do a factory reset.
