I want to update my phone
What version of IOS are you running on your phone?
So what do you mean by "update my phone"? Update the IOS version or update things from iTunes?

I have had problems in the past where Mac iTunes/iDevice updates did not work. The issue was that they were on different revisions of their respective operating systems. Are both your phone and MacBook running the latest OS versions? Probably would be helpful to know which phone and MacBook you have.
