no you were right: "sudo yum remove libmtp" was the correct command, yum 
removed vlc and rythmbox because they must have a dependency on libmtp. 
You could not have kept rythmbox while removing libmtp if rythmox needs 
libmtp (except using --force, which you should never use except if you 
really know what you're doing).

no need: yum update <localfile.rpm> does the same thing as rpm -Uvh 
<localfile.rpm>, except that it installs any deps needed by 
localfile.rpm if they are in one of your configured repos. But if that 
were the case rpm -Uvh wold have complained about a missing dep and 
would have refused to install the rpm.
Another small difference is that yum stores a history of its 
transactions (and has some features associated with that), but 
installing the odd local package with rpm won't cause any problems AFAIK.

BTW rpm -Uvh and rpm -ivh do the same thing when the package is not 
already installed on your system. The difference is that -ivh won't 
remove an older version if already present (but you  can't do that with 
most packages, and rpm won't let you, since different versions of the 
same package will often conflict with one another).

To summarize, you did the right things as far as libmtp is concerned. 
Now the issue lies beyond that, probably with gvfs-photo2 as suggested 
by Farkas via Ljubomir, but I can't help you much with that. Except 
Farkas suggests also rebuilding and installing simple-mtpfs, have you 
done that?
