Samuel, thank you for your help.

I did a "yum clean" which completed with no errors. There is no
/var/tmp/system-upgrade directory that I can find (a lot of old systemd
stuff though, so I purged that).

There are a lot of both F19 and F20 RPMs in /var/lib/yum/plugins/local,
however. Should these be purged as well?

I don't know of a way to see what's in the grub2 boot menu other than
actually trying a reboot, but I'll try to be careful.
