There are probably two unrelated issues:

  1. "failed to start wait for plymouth ..." → This is probably bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=967521. As a work-around, you can press ESC during bootup.

  2. lack of disk space. Try

    du -ax | sort -g | less

This will give a list of stuff on the root partition, sorted by size. You'll probably find something to nuke in there. E.g. /var/log/messages* or /var/log/journal// might be good options, assuming you don't need the logs.

  1. rpm errors... Here alexfinn's suggestion is good. Just make some free space beforehand.
