I believe OSX 10.11 is El Capitan, not Sierra. I think since there seems to be some confusion here it would help to know exactly which model Mac you own (use the link that brought you here) and to what version you wish to update/upgrade (if that is even possible).

No such thing as 11.10 or 11.11. Currently the highest macOs version is 10.13.3 High Sierra.


Sierra was 10.12.x


What model MacBook do you have exactly? If its running Sierra, it can run High Sierra.

If its running 10.11.x El Capitan it may or may not be able to run Sierra or High Sierra.
