1. See if there's any outstanding transactions to finish: 


2. If you can identify which transaction caused the problem (by using
yum history info) You can try 'yum redo N' where N is that transaction

3. Failing that you can do 'package-cleanup --cleandupes' which will
remove the older ones of each duplicate. This should be fine if the
transaction failed at the point where it had new packages installed to
disk but had not yet removed the old ones from the db.
