@Sohail Is your device currently working ?? Have you try to update OTA ?? Why I am asking this is because this type of error is also reported by some tab2 users, I remember one of them was saying that whenever I tried to update my device via Kies it disconnects and device keep on initialising and if they try to update via OTA it show some error as can't be downloaded please try later or something like that....... I suggest them to wait for a week as that firmware is rolled out recently the server might be to busy, and after a week later they have successfully updated their device, So I'll suggest the same solution for you to.

@Sohail OTA means over the air ...... There are basically two methods of updating your device 1st By Using Kies in this you connect your device via data cable and update it and secondly is OTA, in this your network provider will push the update, I am sure have seen notification about update in your device that mode of updating is termed as OTA. I don't think you are allowed to update to 4.3Jellybean unless you have root your device, you can update to the 4.3 by rooting your device and flashing ROM from the other vendor not samsung you can try cynogenmod, i will not prefer you doing this if you have less knowledge about rooting.... so i would say it first read all about rooting and how it's done then move forwards with it as it always include risk i.e. if not done properly your device can get bricked. You can find a bunch of information available in the internet ... try searching it yourself in the Google try "How to root GT-i9300" I am sure you can get a whole lot bunch of information.
