First, thank you for providing all the past history detail. Without that, it would have been very difficult to help you.


The fact is that your friend owns Whatsapp as it was obtained using her/his Apple ID. You do not own Whatsapp, and therefore can never update it (and should not use it).


Delete Whatsapp from your iOS device(s). Then "purchase" it (whether free or not) from the App Store using your Apple ID.
