I Don't Know How But This Solved My Problem...For WW SKU.

Many Ze550KL Users Are Suffering From The Error 'E:Recovery Mount Failed,ASDF
(Invalid Arguement)' On Updating From 1615 To 1708 Marshmallow .And If you want
to assure yourself that this will fix or not then just go to recovery before u
sing this method and try to 'wipe cache' partition or 'mount system' or try to '
view recovery logs',you will surely get the following error,now after doing this
fix,try all the options I mentioned earlier,you will get no error and you can a
lso view your recovery logs now...

I also suffered from this error and then updated it by downgrading to lollipop a
nd then flashing the 1708 rom,but it didn't solved the error,so I think in futur
e updates this error will also stop us from updating...So I started flashing r
ecoveries of all versions available,I then updated my recovery to marshmallow 16
05 version and flashed the 1708 rom Zipfile,and I got surprised when I cleared d
ata cache and formatted the device before rebooting to firmware,the problem got
solved i don't know how and I am sharing this method here so you all can try an
d tell me it worked or not...
Finding The STOCK Recoveries and Boot images is also a painfull task because it
isn't available easily in Internet,but I found all the files ,I took all the f
iles from a Nice Guy Named Shakalaca,a XDA member's Google Drive Folder And co
pied to my google drive,He has prerooted Roms in his google drive folder so I t
ook only STOCK recovery and boot images,I am posting the link of his google driv
e also because If anyone want the prerooted system image then can download from
there...
NOTE:ALL THE RECOVERY AND BOOT IMAGES ARE STOCK IMAGES...
