You can go to settings and to the bottom of settings you'll see "About Phone", click on it & then on update phone. It will either tell you there is an update or say the most recent update has already been installed.
If it says the most recent update has been installed then =

You'd have to root and run a custom ROM if one is available for that phone.
LG abandoned many of its phones from being updated when Android 4.0 ICS was released and so your kinda SOL on official updates for certain LG phones & the Black is I believe one of them.

There is no/are no more official update(s) available for the Optimus Black. You will have to root your device and install a custom rom to get any sort of updated OS.

It is available for the international models of the Optimus Black. Unfortunately, the Telus/Koodo carrier locked ones are not eligible to be updated.

You can Root it and flash the official ROM according to one site. Someone tried it on the Koodo model & it works fine they said. There's a link on on of the threads I posted here, so just use the search box up top & you should find it.
