You contradicting yourself. 64-bit packages are entirely different files than
32-bit packages. Your only option is to download all of them. One way or
Also keep in mind that not all of packages are ported over to 64bit yet.
If this may be an important factor in your decision to switch over to 64-bit
installation, you'd have to do some investigation first. I.e. install 64-bit
OS in virtual machine and try some things you normally do in your daily use.
