The pure64 port is a seperate arch. There is no way to upgrade to it
and no intention of providing one. That has to wait for multiarch
(which should come down to apt-get update; apt-get upgrade).
If you want to try it out use a chroot. If you want to fully use it
use the Debian-Installer images or make the chroot bootable.
