I did NOT downgrade the glibc package, all I did was delete (rm __*) the rpm database files, and when it recreated them, everything worked fine. Either they were corrupted during the upgrade, or as someone mentioned (what I think happened) is that one (or more) of the packages wasn't updated during the first release of the upgrade. After this second upgrade, without even trying to access the rpm database, I removed the files once again and let rpm recreate them. So far no problems.
