How to update Joomla 3.0.2 to the last version?

I have Joomla! 3.0.2 Stable 08-November-2012 (Joomla Platform 12.2.0 Stable) with sh404SEF, JSitemap PRO. What is the easiest way to update it to Joomla 4 or higher?

First backup the whole site & store the backup in a safe place.
Then update all extensions to the latest versions,
then update Joomla to 3.9.19.

Joomla 4 is still beta.
I would wait with updating to Joomla 4 until Joomla 4.0.0 stable has been released.

Extentions >>> Manage ... update

Components >>> Joomla update
If the update does not show then
Download ... format=zip
Components >>> Joomla update ... Upload&Update (tab) to upload and install it
