Okay. I got rid of the kaffeine stuff. Found the transaction files in yum
and deleted them. I then ran yum-complete-transaction without errors. So
that part of it is fixed.

I then ran "yum clean all" but am still having dependency issues  when I try
to update.

I'm guessing I need to find the file that the function(?) that
perl(Pod::ToDemo) is found.

rpm.pbone has a file called Perl-Pod-ToDemo, but it won't install, saying it
needs Perl5 files -- so I tried reinstalling Perl, but it didn't help.

I'll keep Googling.
