if you have custom recovery never ota
You can ota with root if you meet the following requirement:
1)you don't have any mods
2)you don't use xposed
3)you haven't removed bloat
4)you have not modified system partition in other words the system folder
5)and most importantly you do not have custom recovery, for ota to work you need the stock recovery to work
