Yum complete transaction stuck

Hello guys I am new to yum and I am having a strange problem. Package kit started complaining that I have to use yum-complete-transaction in order to install something. I'had the same warning when I used yum install. I tried to run yum-complete-transaction. This is the output:

There are 1 outstanding transactions to complete. Finishing the most recent one
The remaining transaction had 972 elements left to run

Then it starts to proccessing dependecies I left it overnight but it is still proccessing I tried it a few times with no luck. And it takes all of my memory 8 GB total. Please can you help me because I am stuck on this thank you.

Sorry I forgot to mention I am under Fedora 15 x64 I will tell you the kernel version when I get home.

please post any errors

Not a good idea

This is the correct way to deal with this error.

Code:
su

Re: Yum complete transaction stuck

Thank you guys but before your posts I tried something different. I ran "yum install KPackageKit"
and then "yum install yum" after that I ran "yum clean all"l. And the warning disappear.
But the problem is still I cannot update properly the yum update fails. wit this. I tried the same with KPackageKit and I have this message "an error occurred while running the transaction"
In the details it says "could not add package update for fedora-release-
rawhide-15-3(noarch)updates: fedora-release-
rawhide-15-3.noarch"

Sorry if I made it worst.

Re: Yum complete transaction stuck

The last command should have removed 14 duplicate packages only, non of them were related to networking.

Post

Code:
ifconfig
and
Code:
nm-tool

Re: Yum complete transaction stuck

I don't have any network interfaces everything is like erased. Yesterday I was able to compile manually some drivers for and bring back wlan0 manually. The problem is that dhclient is missing and other tools as well. If there is a way manually to bring back dhclient I will able to get internet and use yum again for fixing most of these problems.
Sorry for bothering you guys I made clean install of fedora with the new kernel 40 because I was with 38 it was still in the beta I hope 40 is more stable thank you for your help.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting this. I've been trying for HOURS to get this to work. Kept on getting the same message as the thread leader said, except I was told I must 'be root'.. what was that? I wondered. Spent more hours trying to figure it out, looked at the man pages, finally did figure it out; but even when I'm LOGGED in as 'root', it still wouldn't work.

Then I found your solution, typed in the magic words in your quote, and ALL DONE!

Thank you!

I suspect you've already solved your problem. It's certainly odd that deleting any of the RPM's you listed would have caused it. If you think that dhclient is all you need to start you back on the way to recovery, then sneaker-net the dhclient RPM on to your box, uninstall the existing one and install your new copy.

I have over 200 <blah> is a duplicate with <older-blah> messages left over when my box rebooted while I was updating all of my Fedora 18 RPMs (for no compelling reason, other than a popup appeared that said that I could.) I couldn't face uninstalling the older RPMs one at a time and testing for side-effects, so I tried uninstalling them 10 at a time, without paying attention to what the RPMs were. This was not a great plan, since my box rebooted after one of the uninstalls and x-windows wasn't launched when it finished rebooting. (Forums like this one provided a solution to this problem, too.)

Having authored a few RPM spec files, I should have realized that RPMs can own potentially critical files that get deleted when the RPM is erased. Obviously, the newer-version RPMs ownership of the same file isn't enough to preserve it. Deleting the older RPM now strikes me as perilous. What I really don't understand is how the RPM DB can get so wedged to begin with. I'll avoid updating anything that doesn't have a known security issue or bug I need a fix for in the future. I'll also attempt to keep the number of yum packages updated in a single command to a minimum.

Re: Yum complete transaction stuck

Sabotage3d, it looks to me like the problem is you have a mixture of fc15 and fc16 (from rpmfusion) packages. I would suggest that you erase all the fc16 packages that show up on in the error message and their dependencies. If you still don't have an internet connection, it might be easiest just to upgrade to Fedora 16 or 17. That's probably what you want to do anyway.

Re: Yum complete transaction stuck

Since the OP's problem occurred about 1 1/2 years ago, If he hasn't found a fix yet, then he's not going to. Since nothing else really great has been added to this thread, it's getting closed.
