C-130s are now pretty old machines with strings attached from the USA.
20-25 Chinese Origin Y-9s can be the best replacement for the 18 C-130s of PAF.

Is PAF looking to acquire the remaining 6 IL-76/78s from Ukraine with the same upgrade package?

Backup of your claim please, nothing happened, our latest C130 is E version after that there is no upgradation to our C130, don't spread false rumors just like you spreading in Navy section, no one believe you without any proof
If u don't know things than its better to be quiet n learn, rather than making a fool of ur self.

Their were 2 programs to upgrade the c 130 n bring them to h standard:
First happened in 2014 by which the u.s govt under the head of FMS agreed on a program for PAF C-130 Fleet Upgrade and associated equipment, parts, training and logistical support for an estimated cost of $100 million.

This included, avionics upgrades, engine management and mechanical upgrades, cargo delivery system installation, and replacement of outer wing sets on six aircraft. Also included are spare and repair parts, support equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor technical and logistics support services, and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost was $100 million.

2. In 2016 again under FMS, Rockwell Collins was awarded a 30 million $ contract to provide Flight to avionics system to PAF to upgrade 11 C-130E and five c130 b ac.
Under the terms of the $30m contract, the company designed, manufactured, integrated, trained and delivered 11 C-130E model kits and five C-130B integrated avionics suites and kits to Pakistani Air Force (PAF).

The contract covered the development, validation, and delivery of consolidated B/E flight manual and associated checklists, as well as maintenance supplements.
Work under the contract was carried out at PAF’s Nur Khan Base, Islamabad.

And in between the two
PAF with some help from Allison engine company updated the old engines to Allison T56-A-15 turboprops. This too happened at noor khan AFB.

Making our c130 fleet into h model in all aspects but the name

PAF would rather go for an European option, there’s also Brazilian, Japanese and Russian offerings in this sector apart from the American and Chinese ones.

PAF can go for more C130s used one from any 3rd country and possibly C390 from Embraer can be considered after selection of Embraer 1000 lineage by PN

Chance to grab around 12 C-130J for very low price as RAF are retiring them, but we will need US permission

Used C-130s need US permission as well. While it won’t be impossible to get said permission, with the current situation with Afghanistan nothing is certain.

Yes sir Afghan situation atleast can make C130 availability for us, we konw PAF are very much satisfied with C130 from decade's.

Royal airforce is getting rid multiple C130s which can be considered (if get in cheaper cost)
