Question Cannot flash any zip in custom recovery

I have the galaxy s3 sph-l710 with the l710VPUCMK3 Knox bootloader and Philz recovery. when I try flashing any zip, no matter what it is, it says finding update, installing update, instalation aborted. then I get the android with the red triangle. I can still boot up just fine but I cant figure out why I cant install any zips. I have suspicions that its because of the knox bootloader. Any suggestions or advice?

In my knowledge, Knox bootloader only blocks bootloader modifications.
Try using a different recovery, that might solve your problem

eat sleep is right, i could be wrong but you should maybe downgrade to a non knox bootloader from there you could root and try to flash stuff. (look it up first i could be horribly wrong)
"Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
"How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
"You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here."
