Hi, is it possible to upgrade from F17 32-bit to F18 64-bit using Fedup? My system is 64-bit.

I don't think so (NOT possible). Because you have two crucial dependencies, one is on kernel level (you are using 32-bit kernel), another one is application level (/ tree, all applications are written for 32bit mode).

Hence, if you upgrade your kernel to 64bit, and rest of application downloads, in the last kernel bringup phase, your kernel will hang. Why? Since 64bit kernel cannot transfer thread of execution to your 32bit / tree.
