Has anyone else run into this issue when running yum update?

yum-complete-transaction first to finish them.

I've already run yum clear all, but the problem came back when I ran yum
update again. Firefox and xulrunner were also being "held up," but I was
able to update them by running yum update firefox.

As far as I can see there is no yum-complete-transaction command.

Thanks for any pointers.
