Note, instruction are slightly different if going from RTM straight to CU5 vs. from CU1 to CU4

Known Issues:

Greg found that Lync Server 2013 CU5  Update Fails when installing on a machine with the core components only , he found that  if you went to a CU before CU5 then to CU5 it was ok. Microsoft recently followed up with a KB confirming the issue , but without any advice other than don’t install for now (presumably because they do not keep historic download links for previous CUs), from the sound of the KB I suspect they are going to fix the installer at some point.
