    Hello and welcome to Android Central Lukson K Thomas1!

    Your model of Galaxy S5, G900F, is currently on the latest Samsung firmware, Android 5.0, for the unbranded Singapore Product Code, XSA. There are 3 other firmwares for Singapore and they are all on 5.0 as well. Therefore, currently, you will need to flash another country's firmware if you wish to update to Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1. Whilst all Samsung firmwares have an English language pack you may find that not all will have Malay, Tamil, etc; and you should choose a country's firmware that is likely to have these such as Malaysia.

    You can download and flash this via Odin by carefully and thoroughly following the instructions and video contained in the links of #1.11 of 42 Galaxy S5 models - Dummies Guide. As per the warning in that guide, flashing a firmware that is not for your Product Code will prevent future updates OTA and you will need to reflash your phone with your Singapore, XSA, firmware when it is released.

    I do not mention changing the .PIT file in my posts!!!

    I would never recommend changing .PIT files as, if you do not know what you are doing, you can screw up and brick your phone.

    It is your phone's Product Code that determines which firmware updates you receive... or not. See #1.8 of the aforementioned Dummies Guide.

    You can root your phone and use the Phone INFO ★Samsung★ app from the Play Store, (which, from your screenshots, you already have), to change your Product Code in... Menu > Other Tools > CSC Changer.

    No. You will need to unroot by flashing the stock Samsung firmware again before you can receive updates.
