Lots of people reporting this issue including me. I did a yum upgrade on two 
machines that failed on upgrade from the DVD in the way you describe. Worked 
beautifully. It took a long time - I had to remove a couple of packages on 
one machine that failed dependency checks, but other than that, it worked. 
The usual little stuff is broken after the upgrade, but nothing show-stopping 
so far. Avahi ends up with two instances after the update, but you can google 
the fix for that - it's simple. Long time means overnight - there were around 
1400 packages on each machine that got updated. Both were complete when I 
looked the next morning.
