    Welcome to Android Central! What kind of tablet is it? If it says the system is up to date, then there is no official update available. Most cheaper devices will not get much in terms of system updates, so unless you're willing to root the device (which is like jailbreaking an iPhone, and is for more advanced users), you're stuck with what the device came with.

    I won't be able to help, since I know little about rooting. But if you tell us what the brand and model number of the tablet is, someone might be able to help. Check the model number in Settings/About Tablet.

    Also, there will need to be active development for that tablet to get it updated to a newer version of Android. Let's see what brand/model number it is an if there is active development for it.

    You can't update the OS, but if you have Google PlayStore installed it should be able to update any apps you have installed to the latest version if available.

    To elaborate a little, each different device actually has a custom made version of Android on it to work with the specific hardware. So if you want to update your tablet and there isn't an official update for it you'll have to find and OS that someone else has made specifically for your tablet and trust that it actually works OK.
