On startup of the phone i selected "apply update from sdcard".

It took a few seconds while it said
-- Install /sdcard ...

then said
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
E:Can't open /tmp/sideload/
Installation aborted.

Any more suggestions please?

thanks in advance
You got the firmware alright, but you forgot everything else i asked you to get from that site, that is not a flashable rom zip file, its a firmware in Odin format.
You need to get the Odin software from the website, install it on your pc, get the ops file for your phone model from the website, use the flashguide given there on how to use Odin and flash the firmware on your phone.
You will have to unzip the firmware, the firmware is inside that zip file in either multiple rfs files or a single tar format, depends on who assembled the firmware.
