Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit


When using “yum install”, I got this message

Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit

For example, when I’m done running “yum install-y binutils” then I proceed proceed to run “yum install compat-libcap1-y”, a moment later the message like this show up,

Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit …
The other application is: PackageKit

. This message keep show repeatedly if I go with another “yum install”.

So to stop this, just edit PackageKit config in /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/refresh-packagekit.conf then change “enable=1” to “enable=0”

[Main] 
enabled = 0
