i've seen that a couple times already, it means that you have some gnome app, pkgs lib in the install right now that will pull in gnome3 and gnome-shell as dep with this UP4.
what to do? before updating, look at the usual culprits: nautilus, evolution, epiphany, maybe gedit, totem, eog, see how much of that you can strip down and replace with xfce conterparts (be careful anyway that some of those pkgs have dep in core components of the system that you don't want to loose: keyring, networkmanager)

the only option i see is the one i outlined in the post above: uninstall the prime gnome app (with the due attention of course) and try to perform the dist-upgrade after that;
repeat that until you are happy with the result.
