I want to upgrade fedora 17 to fedora 18 with fedup iso and run following command but get error.

[]#sudo fedup-cli --iso /home/omid/Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso --debuglog=fedupdebug.log<br/>
setting up repos...<br/>
Error: can't get boot images.<br/>
The 'fedupiso' repo was rejected by yum as invalid.<br/>
The given ISO probably isn't an install DVD image.<br/>

Please help me!
