Cannot download Android 4.4 system update because there is not enough space to download

I've been trying to download the Android 4.4 "KitKat" update for a couple days now on my Nexus 4, to no avail; every time I try to download it, it gives the error "Not enough space to download", as evidenced by this screenshot:

I have plenty of space: nearly 4 out of 5 gigabytes are free. I've cleared the cache and deleted a bunch of apps, but I still don't have enough space. What could be the issue?
