I’m trying to upgrade my processor but the screw head seems to be damaged and I can’t remove it with my screwdriver. This is my first time trying to remove it. Is there any other way to remove without having to take it to a shop?

You're very welcome.
Looks pretty bad.
Do you have a small flat blade screwdriver that will fit between each side of the philips head screw.
Sometimes you can wedge one in there and force the screw to come loose.
You need a lot of leverage. The longer the shaft and handle, the better.
The next thing to try after that would be some needle-nose pliers on the outside edge of the screw to see if you can turn it that way.
