For now hang in there.
Remember that you have a couple months minimum...

In the next couple of months others will explore this
same issue over and over.  It may turn out to be 
a couple selected simple rpm -i lines followed by a 
more massive yum update after a reboot.

Also communicate with your service provider and ask them for
sugestions.  Be clear that you are only planning at this time....  

i.e. do not pressure them at this time, I suspect they know less than
you do about the FC1-->FC2 transition and if pressed will give you a
SAFE answer that will bend your bi-metalic strip into a knot.

Remember that you have a couple months easy...
