Upgrade from F22 -> F23 fails during "system-upgrade reboot" while erasing F22 packages

dnf log that includes all runs of dnf-upgrade
Description of problem: "system-upgrade reboot" installs 3099 F23 packages and erases approx 800 F22 packages. It then fails while erasing more F22 packages with dnf exception: "The operation would result in removing the following protected packages: dnf, systemd". I've run the reboot multiple times. There were kernel paging failures during several of the runs which forced me to reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: The failure is probably specific to one PC. I ran upgrade successfully on a second PC.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run dnf-upgrade download --releasever=23 (reran until transaction test OK)
2. run dnf-upgrade reboot
Actual results: reboot exited with dnf exception "the operation would result in removing the following protected packages: dnf, systemd". No initramfs or vmlinuz entries for F23 generated in /boot. 3099 F23 packages installed. Approx 800 F22 packages erased.
Expected results: All F22 packages erased and F23 initramfs and vmlinuz entries generated in /boot.
Additional info: I had to rerun download because of a leftover F20 package causing a dependency problem. I deleted the F20 package. I believe there were kernal paging errors that caused one or more of the upgrade-reboots to crash.
What do you mean by "kernel paging errors"?
I get a daily logwatch report. (I run rsyslog as well as the systemd journal). Occasionally following a system crash which requires me to reboot, the next day's logwatch report shows something like "unable to handle kernel paging request".
