Disclaimer:  I am not asking for help;  I am sharing my experiences

Performed the procedure in 
on an "unsupported" system configuration - I did not have an AP 
connected - my internet connection (eth1) was wired internet.  I needed 
to pay attention to advice I saw someplace on that website: "If a 
command fails, just repeat it".

The problem in my situation was with the action of the xs-setup-network 
command (called internally from within xs-setup).  When the Network 
Manager was stopped and restarted by xs-setup-network, it totally 
deleted my wired ethernet connection, with the result that subsequent 
yum package installs (including that of ejabberd) all failed for lack of 
a connection.  After reestablishing the wired connection, I brute-force 
overcame this fault by commenting out the xs-setup-network call within 
xs-setup - then xs-setup was able to run to completion.
