Welcome to Android Central :)
Like the above post said, posting that would be helpful. Also, what version of Kies are you using?

"Latest updates" means "the latest updates that your carrier is sending to this model phone". Even if new version has been out and working for 6 months, it doesn't mean that your carrier has released a version for that model phone. It's up to the carrier when - and if - it's released. (And some carriers - the smaller regional ones - just don't issue firmware updates.)

The over the air (ota) update is probably no longer available. You may need to use Kies to update from a computer or take it to a carrier store.

I'm pretty sure that all S3's have been updated to 4.3 (jellybean).
