10.2.8 is the last version of the 10.2 (Jaguar) version of OS X.

If you want to update past that, you will have to buy a newer major version of OS X.

If you computer can run it, I would suggest you buy 10.5 (Leopard). But check the requirements here:

Reply to RoeIncarnate's Post: hello,
thankyou for your response.
Although it was very clear I just want to make doubly sure that you are telling me that i am unable to update for free in any way. And if so is this because it is too old a version?
i will then be happy to pay you.
thanks

Yes you have to pay to update.

You have made all the free updates that are available for 10.2.x

Apple makes the minor point releases available for free for each version of OS X (ie: all of the 10.2.x releases are free if you own 10.2, all the 10.5.x releases are free if you own 10.5).

Hope this all helps, please let us know if you have any more questions.
