Which Android Version is running on my Samsung Galaxy S4?
Usually, your Galaxy S4 updates itself, so it should be up to date. If you still aren't sure if your Galaxy S4 is up to date, go into the Settings menu of your phone -> About device -> and check the Android version and/or Baseband version. If for some reason, your phone isn't up to date, you should trigger an update search. Go into the Settings menu and look for System Updates and tap on it. This should trigger any missing software updates.
There are no official Android Marshmallow updates for the Galaxy S4. If you want to install Android Marshmallow on your S4, you can do so by flashing a custom ROM on your phone. There are various resources such as LineageOS (formerly known as CyanogenMod) and XDA Developers who offer customs ROMs that will let you sort your phone out with the newest unofficial Android updates.
