I got a similar error on an R710. I did the following sequence and after which it updated successfully:

sudo yum update
sudo yum clean all
sudo /usr/bin/yum -y install $(/usr/sbin/bootstrap_firmware)
sudo /usr/sbin/update_firmware --yes

Running updates...

aborting update...

The error message from the low-level command was:

Could not parse output, bad xml for package: pci_firmware(ven_0x14e4_dev_0x1639_subven_0x1028_subdev_0x0235)
