I think it's a yum bug.

I had this this too. Upgrading a f7 x86_64 system with the DVD.

Then i tried to make the upgrade with yum.
Installed the f8 fedora-release rpm manually.
Started yum update _with only_ the DVD as repository:
yum --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo=f8-dvd update

After a some time it loops while resolving depencies with no progress.
I guess the same happens while upgrading with the DVD.

I have captures of the looping yum if anyone is interested.

With all repositories (fedora everything + others) a "yum update"
doesn't loop. But i it gave others errors (decencies, conflicts).

I'm doing the f7->f8 now in small steps with yum update (all repos
enabled) and resolve the errors manually. So i don't have the original
rpm database anymore.
