Re: yum is stuck

If there is nothing on:

i) /var/log/yum.log and/or /var/log/messages
ii)You launch top and you see a restorecon process which can take a long time (frequently occurs when selinux policies are updates)

probably the yum process itself has been halted. Then:

1)Check that your /etc/grub.conf file is normal (especially if a kernel update was due)
2)Reboot the workstation in the new kernel
3)Do a yum clean all, followed by a yum -y update.

If there are any problems, yum should complain about unfinished transactions on step 3. In that case, you could also issue a yum-complete-transaction between steps 2 and 3. The 'yum clean all' step just cleans the repo metadata cache, it will not delete your repositories or packages.
