First of all, using Ctrl-C to exit yum is always a gamble. It can,
as in this case, leave the system in an unstable or unusable state.
Two things you can try:

 - Boot to run level 3, log in as root from the command line, and
finish the yum update.
 - Boot from the install media, chroot to the mounted file system,
and run yum update.

I don't know if either will fix the system, but they are my best
guess on fixing the problem.
