Same here. Note that the Fedup page says:

        If you're following these instructions before F18 goes GA
        (currently scheduled for 2013-01-15), you do need to use the
        --instrepo argument as shown here. You may also end up with many
        fc17 packages on your system after upgrade - this is not a bug
        with fedup but a side effect of the release process. Once F18
        goes GA, the updates repository will be available and this
        problem should go away.

It then gives this example:

sudo fedup-cli --network 18 --debuglog fedupdebug.log --instrepo<arch>

(substituting for <arch>). This seems to work.
