Option to update operating system not available.

I can't upgrade my Samsung S5 operating system. Under about phone there is no system update option. How can this be corrected?

Quite possibly it can't be corrected. The S5 is an old phone by current standards even if you can still buy it new, and OS support for it is probably something that isn't on Samsung's priority list...

You can root the phone and so remove manufacturer OS restrictions, but doing so also invalidates any warranty that it may have and does carry with it the possibility of bricking it beyond repair. Caveat emptor!

I have purchased a later model to be able to upgrade the operating system. Thanks for the feedback.
