    You need to do more then just press unroot in SuperSU. You need to flash firmware.

    Is that what the problem is?

    Yes, that's the issue. I'll reply further in the morning currently inebriated. I'll walk you through no worries.

    Download the firmware from updato.com
    Download Odin, put the firmware in the ap slot. Or if the firmware is split put the firmware in the appropriate slots, the firmware if split is marked.

    Put the phone in download mode and flash the firmware and enjoy.

    Hi Gavin2196, If your phone was rooted - a Factory Reset will take it back Stock ROM. Because it was rooted, you will not be able to download and install Samsung updates. There is a counter which must be reset before Knox will recognize the phone as Std Samsung S4 again.
    If you want install a newer Android version, the phone will need to be rooted and Odin used as James has advised.
