If you are talking about commercial software (including the Mac OS), then you cannot. Commercial software generally costs money. Getting it for free generally means pirating (aka stealing) the software, which is illegal. It is also not permitted to be discussed on this site (see item 12 on the list):

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forum-rules/

If you are talking about finding freeware/public domain alternatives to commercial software and doing updates to make the current major versions of the software you do have (i.e. you are using Mac OS 10.4.2 and need help trying to update to the latest version of Mac OS 10.4.x), then that we can help with.

I'm afraid it is unavailable to upgrade software without costs. Most software company provide upgrade service with paid costs. If you don't want to cost money, you can do it like Smax said, just try freeware. When they upgrade paid software, their freeware will be also upgraded.
