You must put all the RPM's on the same command line invocation, or it
won't work.  There are circular dependencies in the old packaging, which
cannot be rid of unless you upgrade all at once.

Although, you may still get problems with the postgresql-data package --
like Thomas said, you may be better off dumping your data then
uninstalling the old RPM's, and then installing the new.

Are you running RedHat 6.x?  RedHat 6.0 shipped PostgreSQL 6.4.2, RH 6.1
shipped 6.5.2, and 6.2 shipped 6.5.3.  RedHat 7 shipped 7.0.2.  RedHat
5.2 was the last RedHat release that shipped 6.3.2.
