Updating from LR 5 and Mavericks

Hello Wise People,

I am using LR 5 and Mavericks and want to update my operating system (and LR).
It turns out this might be difficult.
I can see that I will need to do this in stages and that Lightroom 6 can act a s a bridge to get me to Mojave (and then I can update LR once I am in Mojave to LR classic), but now I am too late to get LR 6.
No copies to be found.
Any thoughts, suggestions on how to get myself out of this predicament?
