No go, 

# package-cleanup --cleandupes
Setting up yum
Loaded plugins: kernel-module, refresh-packagekit
No dupes to clean

After doing so more digging I found /boot/ existed.  Very strange file permissions though,

-????????? ? ?    ?          ?                ?

# rm -rf
rm: cannot remove `': Stale NFS file handle

I never even had NFS running on this system, it is a new build.  The file permissions are the same in single user mode.  If I boot from a rescue disc the file is not listed.  I have been a UNIX Admin for many years and have never seen something like this.

Looks like something didn't install cleanly a few updates ago.

I would suggest using package-cleanup to fix it:

# package-cleanup --cleandupes

Once that's done, re-run yum update and see if that clears the problem.
If not, we may have to resort to more aggressive tactics. The good news
is this definitely can be fixed (voice of personal experience).
