Tried that and still no success.

Yup, this will happen, that's what you need the -U flag for.

Now I notice that you have some conflicts which are not directly related to glibc, and this is why I warned against trying this on a hot system. So much depends on your C libraries that you can quickly find yourself in dependency hell. Package A-2.0 needs B-2.0 needs C-2.0... but C-2.0 needs A-2.1. Oops, start over.

Usually when I find that I've outgrown my libc, it's time to look at the next version of my OS distribution.
