No you can’t.
(we do mention that here: Updating Zammad — Zammad documentation)

Please refer the elasticsearch documentation for upgrade paths:

Other option is to remove the elasticsearch storage directories and start over, however, this is destructive and may not work for your environment. That’s out of our scope. Sorry.

Ok thank you.
I can´t update when i change my sources.list to elasticsearch version 6?

Please follow Elastics upgrade path:

If your versions do fit follow the path. If it doesn’t fit you have to start over.
