    Hi

    You update the Application version by installing Hotfixes which contain Application updates.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamicsax-2012/appuser-itpro/apply-updates-and-hotfixes#how-can-i-tell-what-type-of-hotfix-im-installing

    Typically, this would be done by installing a recent Cumulative Update (CU), or, per the screenshot you shared, the Feb 2019 update.

    It is not so important that the Application version matches the Kernel version. The Kernel version is allowed to be newer.

    If you want to update the Application, try the most recent hotfix pack (Feb 2019), and then if you need any specific, more recent application fixes to solve problems you are having, you can install those too.

    Note that installing Application hotfixes is a lot easier if the environment has no development customisations.
