I am going to see if I can find someone in the organization with a Red Hat account to open the bug. In the meantime, I came up with a workaround. I wanted to see if I could role the updates back to CentOS 6.7 since the system was 6.7 until I applied the updates. The alternative is to load the system from scratch, so what is there to loose. The result seems to be working so I will document what I did.
# First I rebooted and specified to use the original kernel
# Then mount the place where I unloaded the original DVD ISOs mount -t nfs phxbkup2:/iso/CentOS6.7×64 /media/CentOS
# Tried to sync from this location, but it did not work,
yum –disablerepo=\* –enablerepo
