Thank you. I was afraid I'd omit that detail. The upgrade
was from FC6. As for yum sitting there taking it's own
sweet time, I claim a sitting time of 30 minutes hung/flat
against the wall/broken. Lacking a good error message that
is my personal standard, but I don't claim it to be the
correct one. YMMV of course.

Upgrades take lots of time especially with mininimum recommended RAM
(256MB)installed. Think 10+ hours if you had "everything" or its
equivalent installed. Try a clean install instead.

Ding! Ouch. I had thought I gave enough time to be sure things were not just thinking hard, but your comment might suggest otherwise. Oh well. Life is an adventure.
