You can not update directly from your iPod Touch until iOS 5 or later.
What generation iPod Touch do you have?
Here are the most current iOS for each generation of iPod Touch:
1st Gen iPod Touch - iOS 3.1.3
2nd Gen iPod Touch - iOS 4.2.1
3rd Gen iPod Touch - iOS 5.1.1
4th & 5th Gen iPod Touch - iOS 6.1.3
If you have a iOS 5 supported iPod Touch then you can connect the iPod to iTunes to update:
