Rooted phones have their status set to "Custom" so you cannot update OTA.
What you can do is to download the stock rom from Sammobile and flash it using odin, then root it again.
P.s. Rooting triggers knox so warranty will be voided.

thanks, but flashing it will delete all of the files installed?

if it does, do you have any recommendations for a backup software?

Flash stock rom via Odin. Its delete root. Root new version again and ->

You can use Titanium backup for aps and SMS backup for SMS. Contacts save on google acount

Is this the best way to get my 4.3 rooted note 2 lte to 4.4?
Flash stock 4.4 rom from sammobile (which deletes root) and re root?
