I would agree.  From your description before, I think that your system
is either constrained by memory or hard disk space from doing a 1600+
update in one chunk.  A guess.

I think you need to update each package individually, rather than en
masse as you are trying.  The fact that the libraries didn't upgrade is
a very bad sign.  That your system still booted is a good sign as it
means there is some coherence still present.

Do a  yum list installed  to see what is actually installed.
Redirect the output to a file and put 
yum -y upgrade    in front of each package.
Then run it as a shell script by adding   #! /bin/bash   at the top and
making it executable  chmod +x script.

At first it should pull lots of dependencies in, then fewer and fewer.
But it shouldn't be a single massive update.

If that doesn't work, try doing some forced updates of library packages
that seem to be causing problems before going back to yum.

I think you can recover from this, but it is going to be a long hard
slog.  I suggest a short walk in the fresh air before you start.
Making decisions in urgency, unless necessary, is rarely good policy.
