Default [Q] Cannot update rooted AT&T S4

Hello I have a rooted S4 i used kingo root app from a computer to root my S4 it was my first time rooting any android as I am new to android os I am familiar with apple and jailbreaking i like android much better, that's why I switched so I want to get the new 4.4.2 update from AT&T but everytime i try it says installation failed and I don't know how to put my stock firmware back on, I'm pretty much stock but I deleted bloat ware and stuff like that when my s4 boots up it says custom under the samsung logo please help I just want to update 😭

What firmware version are you on? Mf3 or mk2. You'll need to use Odin to return to stock. There are tar files for both firmware versions in the general forum. Use the one that you are currently on.
As always, backup first.

Edit mk2

You need to use Odin and go back to 4.3 stock. Update will fail due to the root on your phone.
