Software update never finishes. Always gets hung at " cleaning up packages" and I see nothing in the logs.

Is it a bug ?

I have the exact same problem. Any resolution on this? I've tried 'rpm --rebuilddb', which works fine, but doesn't fix the problem.

yum clean all

That should work :)

Yes, "yum clean all" will resolve the problem. But the problem should not have been created in the first place. Software Update should not hang and force the user to the command line to clean up after it.

Thi problem has existed for several months. It has been reported as a bug. But so far no one seems to think it is worth fixing. Because it will apparently never get the attention of developers, I ignore Software Update.
