The latest release you can upgrade to is 6.2.33. Here is the process: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/mds9000/sw/6_2/upgrade/guides/nx-os/upgrade.html#pgfId-419279
Note that this switch is the end of support, so you are on your own.
I would recommend upgrading to the latest 32G FC switch – 9132T or 9148T.
