Interesting,  Looking in this log I see a large number of checks being done unrelated to updating the system.  When I initiated the update process with the host in maintenance mode I would see just a couple of lines about start/finish repo checks being performed. That was it.  After seeing that I checked the yum.conf and disabled the glusterfs* exclude I had placed in there previously and the upgrade process completed.  Thought I had disabled that exclude already.  It's always something simple in the end.

Thanks for the help.

The failure should be reflected on the host in /var/log/vdsm/*vdsm.log
What do you see there?

Hello,  Today I began upgrading my ovirt 4.1 to 4.2 by updating the engine
following the steps in the 4.2 readme.  This went well and the upgrade
completed.  What I've run into is I have attempted to install the ovirt
release 4.2 on the host and then ran a yum upgrade on it while in
maintenance mode.  I rebooted the system and can put the host into active
mode but in the ovirt compute host screen is showing that updates are
available.  No mater what I do to tell it to check for updates it still
shows available updates.  If I install updates they fail.  I see events like
the following in the graphical interface.

Check for available updates on host host1 was completed successfully with
message 'found updates for packages ovirt-host'.

Host host1 was switched to Maintenance mode

Host host1 upgrade was started

Failed to upgrade Host host1

How can I resolve this issue?
