    Your device may not get an update. Have you looked into flashing a custom ROM on the device?
    Rooting the device will stop you from getting any future OTA updates, and if there is one, the OTA may break root.

    The Samsung Core sounds like a mid tier phone. Nothing wrong with that, but it possibly excludes it from being updated. A custom ROM like CyanogenMod, can get you up to date, depending on if they support the device. Assuming CM has a ROM for your phone, you may possibly get 4.4 as opposed to 4.2.

    Since you are rooted, chances are the OTA update will fail.

    Don't worry about the questions. That is what we are here for.
