Yes it is possible, I have studied Samsung for 4 years now, and they has bad egg when it comes in releasing updates to there old phones.
When ever Samsung releases a new phone , it started counting that Day.
First Samsung don't push updates to any of there devices more than twice.
Second any phone that is more than 3 years from the date of releasing the phone , the phone will not receive any other updates from Samsung.
Now what to do is to download third party updates which is called CUSTOM ROM OR CUSTOM FIRMWARE
