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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
