Yum stalling

It appears that the RPM database needs rebuilding if a yum process is killed
prematurely, since it probably had the RPM db open and now it’s in an inconsistent
state.

The steps :

  • Kill all yum and rpm processes.
  • rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
  • rpm --rebuilddb (add -vv if you want to see what it’s doing)
  • Retry yum update.
