There are two ways to install apps.

OTA= use your BB's browser and point it to the download. It will download and install automatically. This is the easiest way.

Desktop Manager = Download and install .alx/.cod files and use Desktop Manager to install the app to your device.

Update is probably referring to the OS version on your BB. Look in Options >About to find out what OS version you have and then make sure the apps are compatible with your device and OS version.

Desktop Manager should have come on the CD that came with the device. You can also download the latest version 4.5 here:
