Welcome to the Community
If your vendor has not released 7.1 and if you wish you can update your device OS by installing any other Carrier's OS packages.To update follow the steps :
1.Locate your Carrier and Download the OS you desire from here and Install it in your PC or Laptop Carriers
2. Download and install the latest BlackBerry desktop software from here BlackBerry desktop software
3.Search your C: drive for Vendor.xml and delete them, there may be one or two vendor.xml ( On your Pc change your folders option to show hidden files/folders ) :
5. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader. (For 64-bit Vista or Windows 7, the path will be C: > Program Files x86 > Common Files > Research In Motion > AppLoader) double click Loader.exe.
Upgrade will continue then After Installation of New OS restore your backup from BlackBerry desktop
Try it and let us know.

I have the same problem.
And I have tried this way, but not work.
The following is my situation.
My smart phone is Blod 9900, the current version is OS7.0 bundle 2395.
First, I have followed the official reference to update my "desktop software" to 188.8.131.52.
Second, connect my phone with computer.
But when I click the renew, it just show "Your BlackBerry is up to date"
