My yum Got Stuck
April 12, 2011
I was upgrading using yum in a newly installed Scientific Linux 6 and during the last clean up yum just got stuck. I did a ctrl+c and stopped the process. A reboot worked fine as well. However, suddenly a message popped up saying there was an error in yum and told me to run a command as root:
yum-complete-transaction. This ought to have solved any problems created when I forcefully quit a running yum transaction.
