you can download from the mirror here :

(if you find samfirmware is slow).

If you only flash original firmware, it won't trigger KNOX. region doesn't matter. just pick up the latest one, and don't forget to tick "upgrade bootloader" when you are flashing with ODIN PC. Otherwise, ..... mmm... better not think if you never tick it.

Do you have any real reason to upgrade, other than "to have the latest android version, because THEY say it's better" ?

Maybe this thread will show you the pain in the *** that kitkat is on Note 3:

And also, here, the end of that story:

Maybe you'll think again about upgrading (just my humble opinion).

Good luck,
