Welcome to the forum.
Why can’t you upload it? (I am PC men)
Check what is your firmware version and read description what have been fixed with fallowing versions, and are those fixes essential for you.
I upgraded my camera twice with k-x and k-500 and haven’t encountered any problems but there are peoples who bricked theirs cameras while updating firmware. Some manufacturers advise not to upgrade stuff until you encounter some problems.
If you will decide to does it make Shure you fallow all steps directly.

Welcome from Scotland, usually the updated firmware adds good enhancements to camera functionality.

I'm not familiar with K30 and firmware, perhaps post your question in a more appropriate section of the forum for a better response.

Welcome aboard, greetings from Norway!

Are you trying to upload to the camera via the USB cable? I don't think that is possible. I always use a card reader to transfer firmware updates (and pictures as well).
