can you share your /var/log/ipaupgrade.log ?

your issue with softhsm can be caused by missing enviroment variable
IPA internally uses

please try SOFTHSM2_CONF=/etc/ipa/dnssec/softhsm2.conf softhsm2-util 
--show-slots, and let me know if it works

same with named-pkcs11,

can you share journalctl -u named-pkcs11 output?

I'm not aware of that we need, krb5-libs/openssl, I was getting this 
error if tokens directory doesnt exists, but IPA uses own configuration 
(see 2) not default.
