Just Install Sony PC Companion (Download from Sony). Put USB Cable between your Xperia Z and PC and then start PC Companion Program. The Program search automatically for newest Firmware for your phone and then just Update. that's all.

So it means that the only way you can update to kitkat is by flashing a ftf using a flashtool or you still need to wait till your region release an update.
