I have just installed J3.3.6 and it says the next to update is J3.6.5
Make a backup of your files and database
Download https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla ... format=zip
Then see https://gist.github.com/mbabker/d7bfb4e ... 3607f89281

Or copy your site to localhost and see if it finds the update.

N.B. make sure your php version works with J3.3.6 and 3.6.5 ... it doesn't run on php 7.2.15. Probably doesn't run on php7.x
