It's impossible to say how to update your phone to Kitkat, or if it's even a possibility, given that your phone is a clone of an S4 and not the genuine article.

You should check to see if you can find any documentation for your device that can explain how to go about doing so. If there's nothing available, it's likely that you'll need to go and root your phone, and then flash a custom 4.4 installation to the device. For both of these, you will need to get a compatible USB cable. Though it likely won't apply to your device, here are the instructions for rooting an S4 and for upgrading it to Kitkat.

I have a problem to flash my clone Samsung GT-I950 MTK6575?

I used SP flash and downloaded an official ROM, when I try to flash, it gives me a failed error message, when I test the device it detects that there is no EMMC, so I can not find a solution. I tried a different ROM, custom or official without any satisfying results. I think it was caused by: I think it need a NAND ROM but the problem is that my screen is blank
