Can't update OS X 5 to 6

I am trying to update OS X version 10.5.8 to 6 so that I may use the new features of iCal and the app store.  Every time I try to do this using the Software Update app, (apple menu -> Software Update...), it returns a message that everything is up to date.

Is it wrong?  is it lying?  Am I missing something?

10.5.x is Leopard. To upgrade/update to 10.6 Snow Leopard you have to purchase the snow leopard OS version and then run the upgrade on your system.  Make sure your system is Supported/compatible with the snow leopard requirements.
Below are some references.  Make sure to have a good backup prior to trying anything.
There are also links for the "upgrade from 10.5.8 to snow leopard within apple's discussion forums that you should check out"
