I believe the filesystem RPM basically owns all the main directories on the
system. One of them being /media. I suspect you have something mounted on
/media, and since installing filesystem will try to create /media, that
results in an error it wasn't expecting.

can you umount /media and try again? I think that would allow 'filesystem'
to complete its install process....
