I don't recall, now, if I've replied to this thread or not, but...
I ran into a similar issue a few weeks ago...it turned out that I was
having an issue with my /tmp filesystem (at least)...I couldn't even
perform an orderly shutdown -r.
I wound up hard booting, during which /tmp was fsck'd, clearing a fair
number of orphaned inodes, and my yum update ran just fine after that.
Just a thought.
