Under Agent Settings there is an option to auto update agents. The problem is, the current agent version you are running is not compatible with auto updating to 6.0. You will need to run the uninstall and reinstall or setup a GPO to install the agent. Also make sure under Server settings that you have downloaded the latest agent .kbin also.

This post from IT Ninja shows some excellent screenshots and where to go to check the version of client you have downloaded.

Once you load the newest KACE Agent .kbin file, it will show up in the share.
