If it's just stuck on /home you can edit /etc/fstab to comment out the /home entry, since it's not needed for the upgrade. Then restore fstab after reboot, and reboot again (or mount it manually). Also this case of failure doesn't yet have a work around, and is actually a bug in the F19 installer which was fixed in F20. If it applies to your case, it's best to just reinstall from scratch because the layout is wrong.
