[SOLVED] PackageKit holding the yum lock problem

I encountered yum lock problem caused by PackageKit when I was trying to update some packages in my CentOS (6.4) server.

Now, my work around for this is to disable the PackageKit in my start-up.

Solution:

  1. Go to System Preferences.
  2. In Personal tab, select/click Startup Applications.
  3. Uncheck PackageKit Update Applet in Startup Programs tab
  4. Close. Reboot. Then you’re good to go.

 

If you have other means on how to solve this thing without disabling it, kindly leave a reply. Thanks! 🙂
