Post Problem with stock recovery in mount

I was trying to install the CyanogenMod on my Galaxy S Advance 10.2 with jeally bean. I have the files in the micro-sd, I insert it into the device, start the recovery mod, select "apply update from external storage", but unfortunately writes:
E: Failed to mount / sdcard (Invalid Argument)

How can I fix? Thank you very much.

Try first to wipe cache and dalvik and do a factory reset.
After that, choose "install zip from..." not "apply update..."

You used it before in stock recovery? If you didn't - maybe you need to repartition your sd card. Search xda for "how to repartition external sd card".

I have already done a factory reset but nothing to do. In my recovery is written "apply update ..." and not "install zip from ..." as in other cases.

I did not find true and proper guidance, you have any topics that you would recommend?

Or is it advisable to make the partition with rom manager?

Have you installed a CoCore Kernel already ... because if their is a "apply update from external ..." then you are on the Stock Recovery ... For installing CM 10.1, 10.2 or 11 or for all other roms you need a CWM recovery ... You can go to "Original Android Development" area and there is a thread about CoCore Kernel made by CoCafe ... follow the instructions and if you have the CWM recovery after installing, their should be a "install zip from sdcard".
