Hi kabeer.ece07

 

If to have a smartnet contract I recommend you to open a case with TAC. 

Just go to cisco.com  ---> support -- > open or view cases  and open a new case  , or call the customer service :

1 800 553 2447
1 408 526 7209

 

Anyway answering  your question: 

 

In order to upgrade your ASA you have to download the new version from Cisco.com 

     **Go to Cisco.com ---> support --- Downloads and search the version you need .

 

After that you need to transfer the software to the ASA , It could be done from a TFTP server or via ASDM.

 

Once you have the file into the ASA go to the config mode and type the following commands :

 

Boot system flash:name of the image 

Write memory

Reboot

 

After reboot you can check the version with the "Show version" command

Hope this help.
