Upgrade to PowerShell 5 in Server 2012 R2

What is the correct process to upgrade to PowerShell 5 within Server 2012 R2?

I have already downloaded and tried to install Power shell 5 but I get messages saying that this update is not for your computer.

What's the result when you run $PSVersionTable.PSVersion?
Do you have a link to what you downloaded?

Any reason you aren't installing 5.1?
