Yum update fails after upgrade from F15 to F16 while doing a transaction check

I'm getting closer, but am still having problems...

I manually and selectively ran yum updates to all those packages that
didn't cause errors, and so I have now successfully updated most
things.  Only the following  packages still needing updated are
*stuck* where I can't proceed:

libmtp.x86_64                         1.1.1-1.fc16
llvm-libs.i686                          2.9-4.fc16
mesa-dri-drivers.i686             7.11-8.fc16

Those won't update because of the following unresolvable dependencies:

libmtp = 1.0.6-5.fc15 is needed by (installed) libmtp-hal-1.0.6-5.fc15.x86_64
mesa-dri-filesystem(x86-32) is needed by mesa-dri-drivers-7.11-8.fc16.i686

And "yum check" is now down to just these items:

chess-1.0-37.fc15.x86_64 has missing requires of
libmtp-hal-1.0.6-5.fc15.x86_64 has missing requires of libmtp = ('0',
'1.0.6', '5.fc15')
libnih-1.0.2-4.fc15.x86_64 has missing requires of
llvm-libs-2.9-4.fc16.x86_64 is a duplicate with llvm-libs-2.8-12.fc15.i686
mesa-dri-drivers-7.11-1.fc15.i686 has missing requires of
mesa-dri-drivers-7.11-8.fc16.x86_64 is a duplicate with
mesa-dri-llvmcore-7.11-0.11.20110525.0.fc15.i686 has missing requires
of mesa-dri-filesystem(x86-32)

The suggestion to run "package-cleanup --cleandupes" now does nothing,
because there are no duplicates.

The "yum distro-sync" fails because of the libmtp-hal dependency.

I don't really know what those packages are or what to do about them.
Thanks again,
Deron Meranda
