For the people out there who for some reason had there devices bricked when updating to lollipop. Whenever I was going to flash the WW_5.0_ME176C/X update I would get this error. "This package is for "K013" devices; this is a "K013_1"." I was bricked for a week because of a random device "name change?" Well here are the steps I took to make a flashable lollipop that wouldnt brick me. What you are doing here is telling the script that does the update that it does not need to verify your tablet model since it is wrong anyways.

Step 1: Download 7-zip. Download Notepad++. Download the TEMP CWM. Install the first two and hold onto the TEMP CWM for later. (Links Below)

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v6.7.9.html
http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

Step 2: Download the latest update from asus on your device's page (UL-K013-WW-12.10.1.17_KK.zip in my case). Extract the download into a new folder. If there is another .zip inside the new folder just make another folder and extract it once more.

Step 3: In the folder you extracted the .zip to, navigate to \META-INF\com\google\android. Open updater-script in Notepad++. Delete lines 1 and 2 and Save.

Step 4: Go back to the extracted folder and select all of the files in the folder. Right click and choose "Add to archive..." Make sure the "Archive format:" is "zip" and the "Compression level" is set to "Normal". Name it update.zip

Step 5: Put update.zip in the root of your micro sd card. Insert your micro sd into your tablet.

Step 6: "Open IntelAndroid-FBRL-05-16-2015-PTR" and the folder inside that. Open "launcher.bat".

Step 7: Power off the tablet. Hold the Volume-Down key in, while holding the Volume-Down press and hold the Power button until the screen says Asus, release the Power button at this point. You should be in recovery. Plug your tablet into your pc.

Step 8: In the cmd window that popped up from the "launcher.bat" type "ACCEPT" and when the next prompt appears type "T4".

Step 9: Wait until the cwm recovery fully loads and go to "Install a zip..." then go to "choose zip from external sdcard". When installing it may look like it froze, LEAVE IT BE! It is actually installing.

Step 10: You may get an error about /system not wanting to mount, ignore this and reboot your device, let it go and it will boot into lollipop. (Give your tablet 15mins to boot)

After a week of hurting my tablet and my tablet hurting my feelings I figured out this workaround, let me know if it worked for you! Enjoy 5.0!!!

You could try, the worst that could happen is that you wont be able to flash it.

I don't think It really was in error, I feel like asus renamed it to prevent downgrades in the 5.0 update, I could be wrong but it makes sense.
