I tried this update with stock recovery - update from SD card, but still I get E: signature verification failed message and phone is getting factory reset.
Do I need to install using TWRP only and is this going to root my phone as I do not want to root my phone
please help

No it wont root the device. Your current rom and kernel will remain as they are and it will update only the base firmware/bootloaders to 4.3. And yes, it must be flashed from custom recovery, TWRP recommended. If you don't want root or custom recovery, this or using the Software Update option are your only choices.

I've tried making an Odin flashable package, but it hasn't worked. If I have time I might try again this weekend. Can't promise it though.

I successfully updated to 4.4.2 using the OTA file by OP

Note: this will wipe the phone so take backup

here are the steps I followed
* I had a stock 4.3
* took back up of existing data
* Download the OTA file and unzip it
* find a file 2400258.cfg - rename this file to 2400258.zip
* copied the zip file to SD card
* used stock recovery - update from SD card option

got updated to 4.4.2 and restored the data from the backup

Anyone have a mirror of the OP's fota.zip? Mega has just been showing "Temporary error" trying to download it for the last 2 days now.
