If you want to update your firmware to this version, you’ll have to:

– install the latest version of KIES, or update it.
– remove all lag-fixes from your phone
– backup your phone contacts and calendar
– use Kies Registry Patcher to spoof your phone product code as: XEN
– update your phone through KIES
– factory reset your phone
– restore lost data, contacts and calendar

You can get the latest version of Samsung Kies from: here.

Note: this update is available only if your phone product code is XEN. Otherwise, you can update only if you spoof your product code to XEN using for example Kies Registry Patcher v.1.7 – however, this will void your warranty and can brick your device (actually, the update procedure itself can do it), so use the spoofing metod on your own risk.
