I'm surprised YUM didn't tell you to run "yum-complete-transaction".
I'd try running that first to see if that can clear up your errors.
If not, "package-cleanup --dupes" [again :-( ] and then you can
reinstall the kernel. Luckily, Fedora keeps several kernels around
just in case, and you happen to know at least one is working order.
;-) If something goes awry with the newer kernel, just pick the
working one from the GRUB menu.
