my s21 5g still got no android 13 update and when I check for any updates it says that my phone is up tp date, and that my current version is : G991USQS5BVA6.

And when I search on google ' G991USQS5BVA6 ' it says that my phone is a samsung galaxy s21 SM-G991U TMB USA that I don't understand what it means.

It means your phone is from the USA region

SM-G991B is the international one used in EU and UK but since yours is SM-G991U it means its from US. If you visit your nearest service centre they should be able to update it for you but it might take couple days for them to request the firmware binary.

Your firmware is a year out if date. I don't know if using a TMobile USA sim will work or whether you will have to flash the update yourself.
This is one problem with purchasing devices not meant for the region where it is used.

We are not allowed to discuss this here because of warranties etc but do a Google search for how to use Odin, the firmware is here https://www.sammobile.com/samsung/galaxy-s21/firmware/SM-G991U/TMB/
Note, if you mess up your warranty does not cover you.
