1. Download Kies Software and run it. (www.samsung.com/us/kies)
2. Connect your phone via USB to computer.
3. Kies will tell you if it needs to update or not. (you must be online)
4. If update available, simply click on "Update" button.

If you have android 4.2 you must install "Kies". "Kies version 3" is for Android 4.3 devices.

If you flash a Stock Rom via Odin, you still will be able to update OTA.

Did you rooted your device before?
If you have rooted device your device status is shown modified or custom so you can not update with kies or OTA. Use Wanam Xposed to fake this situation into "Official".

Before that you may try Triangle Away.

NOTE: Use above apps at your own risk.
