If you extract these files you’ll find get a couple .dmg files which needs to be combined into a .ipsw file before you can upgrade the OS.

The solution for this is:

1> Download – PowerISO.

2> Import all the .dmg files and export it to a preferred location as .ipsw file.

3> Go to iTunes and do the regular upgrade process.
