Sorry, apparently this is a conflict between 
titlesec and hyperref.  Here's an alternative 

Remove the call to titlesec and instead place the 
following early in your preamble:

\renewcommand\section{\@startsection {section}{1}{\z@}%
                                    {-3.5ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -.2ex}%
                                    {2.3ex \@plus.2ex}%

This compiles for me with all your other packages.

This was the right idea, but the wrong font 
command.  Change \upshape to \MakeUppercase and 
this will also work!  So take your pick.

It certainly is ugly!
