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?

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

Omega ROM (4.3) v59; Boeffla kernel 5.3; TWRP recovery; Nova launcher Prime; S5 theme; Xposed

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?
