If your phone is running the original manufacturer-supplied OS, then you should be able to do the following:
1) Connect to the Internet using WiFi
2) Open the Settings app.
3) Scroll down and select "About device"
4) Select "Update now"
5) The new update should be downloaded and installed
Alternatively, it should also be possible to download and install the update using your Internet-connected PC with a USB cable and the Samsung Kies or Smart Switch software.
