Update to latest version of Drupal 7 - 7.56? Security issue

I just bought this theme on ThemeSnap. Installed it per the instructions. Ran into a few issues with the images not working and a few modules out of date. I updated everything except the core. Drupal keeps reminding me I need to update to 7.56 for security reasons.

I went through everything the standard update (option 2 - https://www.drupal.org/docs/7/update/update-procedure-in-drupal-7) but no luck.

Any tips on what files I need to keep? The process I should go through to update?

I was really hoping the install would be up-to-date but it looks like nothing has been touched here for a couple of years..

Different download file - extraction errors

So, this is strange, I went to download the theme again from ThemeSnap and it is a completely different file.

before it looked like a normal drupal folder with 'sites', 'includes' etc. folders. This one has a Responsive Update, Theme Documentation and a Theme_Files folder. COOL I thought, not sure why it has changed, maybe DoubleM updated it in the last day?

Anyway, now I went to expand the file "drupal_root_code.tar.gz" in the Theme_Files folder on my server and I'm getting an error "tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors".

So kind of confused on what is going on here. I'd just like a version I can install without errors. This seems soo cool from the demo but not working for me..

tar errors fixed - other issues

I think the tar errors were because tar util on the server didn't have permission to create the directories, so I uncompressed the file locally on my windows machine with 7-zip. Then just to make sure there are no issues with my server, I installed MAMP as shown on the install video. I did everything as shown on the video, including database names etc. After running install.php, this is what I get:

Uncaught exception thrown in shutdown function.
PDOException: SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'realestatedb.semaphore' doesn't exist: DELETE FROM {semaphore} WHERE (value = :db_condition_placeholder_0) ; Array ( [:db_condition_placeholder_0] => 4207653615a063992c9c4b8.28103567 ) in lock_release_all() (line 269 of C:\MAMP\htdocs\realestate\includes\lock.inc).

Uncaught exception thrown in session handler.
PDOException: SQLSTATE[42S02]: Base table or view not found: 1146 Table 'realestatedb.sessions' doesn't exist: SELECT 1 AS expression FROM {sessions} sessions WHERE ( (sid = :db_condition_placeholder_0) AND (ssid = :db_condition_placeholder_1) ); Array ( [:db_condition_placeholder_0] => NaV3i97kfuWcEIRO0G0TPCYO3Se-FbURdWM46AUqvH0 [:db_condition_placeholder_1] => ) in _drupal_session_write() (line 209 of C:\MAMP\htdocs\realestate\includes\session.inc).

I would appreciate any help on this. I feel like I've done everything I can do here, including installing on 2 different servers multiple attempts. Also still curious why there are different versions of this them on ThemeSnap? Within a week - and neither work. Both versions very different as far as structure. on was a zip, one was a .tar with another .tar / zip file inside that with an 'Responsive Update' folder. The first had none of that, but it actually got closer to installing - except it wouldn't update to Drupal 7.56..

Latest download is Drupal 7.56

so I did some digging and while the CHANGELOG.txt on my download from a few days ago shows Drupal 7.41, 2015-10-21 was being installed, this latest download shows Drupal 7.56, 2017-06-21 - yay!! If I could only get it to install..
