Using yum to manage installing, upgrading or removing packages in Linux is a great little tool. Sometimes when running a yum transaction you may get a warning that you need to run “yum-complete-transaction” as you have pending or incomplete transactions.

Simply running yum-complete-transaction will not do the trick if you have not first ran

yum install yum-utils

Once you have installed yum-utils you can then run yum-complete-transaction to fix your yum problems.

yum-complete-transaction – finds incomplete or aborted yum transactions and attempts to complete them

More information regarding yum-utils and the use of them can be found here.
