It is not a supported way of upgrading to new fedora release
It can be done
But you have to be able solve problem with packages there is incompatible.
This is not yum's problem
Try to delete the conflicting packages before updating, if you can
steps from 1-4 are taken from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading_Fedora_using_yum.
Just for your information list of conflicting packages includes: firefox, eclipse, gnome-shell, control-center ...
There is nothing the yum developers can do about it.
Add this procedure is not supported by the Fedora Project, so you are on you own
