Upgrade to Exchange 2013 CU5 in Graphical User Interface

Just tried installing Exchange 2013 CU5  and is pretty much easier  and went clean without any errors/warnings in my lab setup.

For the changes and fix that have been done in CU5 can be referred in my previous article

The setup can be downloaded from this location

As we are aware that the upgrade order from Exchange 2013  if we are using separate server for mailbox and cas then Microsoft recommends to upgrade the mailbox server first and then the cas server.

After the download is complete just open the setup file and it opens the below screen.Choose the required option its always recommended to check for updates and then click on next.
