It has nothing to do with freezing apps. Freezing apps won't have any negative effects on your ability to use an OTA successfully.
Stickmount backs up debuggerd, makes some changes to it, then restores the backup, but sometimes it gets out of sync. When it gets out of sync, your original debuggerd is lost even though there is a backup file because the backup is of the wrong file.
Uninstalling stickmount wouldn't have fixed this issue because it already made the modification to debuggerd.
Keep in mind, normally it isn't root that causes the OTA to fail. It is the use of those capabilities root gave you, to modify or remove files, either directly or indirectly through a 3rd-party app that causes the OTA to fail.
