To see what updates are available, open the App Store App and see what shows up.
Make sure you backup your Mac onto an external hard drive before updating using Time Machine or some other backup tool like Carbon Copy Cloner.
If your Mac can run OS X Mavericks, it can run at least OS X Yosemite, maybe even El Capitan or macOS Sierra-Mojave
Back up your Mac FIRST before anything!
Open the Mac App Store and see what OS is available for your MacBook
Double-click Install OS to begin the installation
If you don’t see anything, check that your MacBook model supports the update you want (look at Apple’s System requirements).
Another method is to download the Combo Update. Look here: https://support.apple.com/downloads/macos
or simply do a search for the version you want to update to and add the word Combo, for example, searching for macOS High Sierra Combo leads to this page: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1970?locale=en_US
To update to any version of macOS, your MacBook first needs to update to Mac OS X El Capitan.
Check if your mac can get El Capitan at this page: OS X El Capitan – Technical Specifications; https://support.apple.com/kb/SP728?locale=en_US
Then, download it via this site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886
ALWAYS check that your MacBook model and version supports the operating system before downloading and installing. Look at System Requirements and Check Compatibility sections.
