    See #1.4 of 18 Galaxy S4 models - know yours? for reasons why you may be receiving this message.

    There is an update for CSC code, BTU, from MEA to Android 4.3, MJ7, firmware...

    As recommended in the above, you can take it to a Samsung Service Point to be updated or, for competent users, you can follow the instructions and link in #1.5 to flash your own firmware, linked above, using the PC suite, Odin 3.09.

    That, Samsung stock, "firmware", MK8, Android 4.3 is the correct one for UK, unbranded, phones but will lock your bootloader and give you a Knox flag, as detailed in... Knox Security & locked bootloader on new firmwares

    That's for you to decide. I just provide you with the relevant information.

    Judging from your screenshot in post #1 and your firmware details in post #3, the phone has been flashed, at some stage, with a different CSC codes firmware which accounts for you being unable to update via Kies or OTA. See #1.4 of 18 Galaxy S4 models - know yours? for more information on this and #1.5 for your options.
