Some other things to try...

strace -f rpm -Uvh <filename>

That should help determine what is causing the hang.  Since you have
indicated that other things are hanging, I wonder if you have some
NFS filesystems which weren't unmounted and now the servers are offline.
Or perhaps some other filesystem device which was there but is now gone.
USB storage perhaps?

Something to think about.
