Maybe. I have been looking at this issue, and can at least give you a little 
information. The fedup generates a dubious boot file in /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, 
which contains both a SYSFONT= and KEYTABLE= options. Removing those will avoid 
the error messages but not make the update boot work.

I'm still working on this as I type, so I may have more later.
