Wanted to upgrade from RH7.1 to 7.2.  Choose to upgraded via nfs, selected

All local partitions(double checked) and nfs mount have plenty of free

Additional info:

I think your RPM database may be having problems on your 7.1 system.  Can you
boot into it and run 'rpm --rebuilddb', then try the upgrade?  Does that help?
