What ISP sold you a Roku? Is it a Roku, or a custom device built by Roku? Some overseas ISPs have done that.

Tell us more about that device. What is the model number? That should be on the physical device. If you can access a menu, Settings > System > About

There is no known way to "jailbreak" a Roku device, which is what you're asking to do. Unfortunately, those devices that were provided by ISPs are not usable if the ISP stops supporting them. I'm just guessing, but the agreement that Roku had with the ISP prohibits offering an official way to update the Roku with the normal OS.
