What version are you trying to update it to?  How do you know there is
a newer version to update to?

As it happens you are in luck because there is a newer version.  The
statalist archives (which are easy to search) contain this message
with instructions on how to update

I believe -genhw- has since been superseded by -hwsnp- and -qtlsnp-
again both by Mario Cleves and published in the Stata Journal
(5(2):141--153).  -findit genhw- points to these as well as the
original STB publication for -genhw- and the most recent version
(7.0.2)  from the SSC archives.

As the names suggest these are focused on bi-allelic Single Nucelotide
Polymorphisms (SNPs), if you're using multi-allelic markers I'd stick
with -genhw-.
