Ah, that worked. Thanks! Here's what I did (exactly what you told me to)

yum erase dell-firmware-repository
yum erase firmware-tools
yum -y install dell_ft_install
yum -y install $(bootstrap_firmware)
update_firmware --yes -v

Let me know if you still want the update_firmware output and log. I assumed
no because it fixed my problem.

Thanks again!

Brandon
