Default update loop?

so this morning i had a message saying update was available on my tab 8.4 wifi so i figured root was a little useless on my tab anyways i would update it. now i keeps looping into installing system update .... then recovery ... then back to installing system update..
i tried to interupt the loop with putting it into download mode but keeps going into recovery and installing system update.
any suggestions?

Did you have custom recovery installed? If so, OTAs require stock recovery, and that is why you looped.
