Welcome to ask.fedora! I don't know where you found a copy of F 18, or why you picked it, but it reached its End Of Life several years ago and is badly out-of-date. There haven't been any bug fixes or updates, even for security in years. Yes, you can, gradually, upgrade to F 23 (or even F 24, as it should be released Real Soon Now) but it's not a good idea to skip more than one version. Your best bet, frankly, is to go directly to the Fedora Projext, download the appropriate .iso and install the Latest and Greatest version. If you set your partitions up during installation with /home on its own partition, you can reuse it without reformatting and keep everything you've done. I'd also suggest that you make a backup of your home folder even if it is on a separate partition, just to be safe.
