Help Samsung Note 2 GT N7100 will not upgrade to newer version


My note 2 crashed and I manage to re-install Android 4.4.2 , baseband version N7100XXUFND3. I know its an old version, but its all I could find.

The problem I have is that the phone will not upgrade to a newer version like 5.0 or 5.1. Its says there are updates but for some reason it wont allow me to update the version of android I have. I have tried re-installing through Kies, but its says the version of my operating system can not be upgraded.

Your help, guidance, assistance and advise would be very much appreciated.

Oh yeah, I'm a novice to all this
Welcome to AF @Fada STarky!
If you want to get to the latest updates ( which @chanchan05 indicated may be limited without root), you can always flash them manually from sammobile.com via a computer program called ODIN :)
Be sure you flash the correct version for you make/model/country/carrier ;)
Also, I've added some info to your thread title to attract more attention.
