Upgrade to CentOS 7
DO NOT USE this tool. Warning: use of this tool is currently BROKEN as several system-critical packages are of a higher version number in CentOS 6.7 than they are in CentOS 7 so those do not get upgraded correctly. This renders yum and several other system tools non-functional.
CentOS 6.6 fails now with the upgrade with error "Downloading failed: invalid data in .treeinfo: No section: 'checksums'" so this is also broken on CentOS 6.6 now and can ONLY be done on CentOS 6.5.
Install pre-upgrade assistant:
$ sudo yum install preupgrade-assistant preupgrade-assistant-contents
Install upgrade tool:
$ sudo yum install redhat-upgrade-tool
List upgrade options:
$ sudo preupg -l CentOS6_7
$ sudo preupg $ sudo preupg -s CentOS6_7
Import CentOS-7 RPM key:
$ sudo rpm --import http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-7
$ sudo /usr/bin/redhat-upgrade-tool-cli --network 7 --instrepo=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64

Erase the existing version of openscap (I had openscap 1.2) and install openscap-1.0.8-1.0.1 from http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg and redo the upgrade.
yum erase openscap yum install http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/upg/x86_64/Packages/openscap-1.0.8-1.0.1.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm yum install redhat-upgrade-tool preupgrade-assistant-contents

According to the CentOS Upgrade Tool web page, the tool is currently broken:
Therefore the choices are to stay with CentOS 6 (supported till 2020), or backup all your data and do a clean CentOS 7 install then restore your data.
