Fedora 11 software update stuck

Fedora 11 software update stuck

I just told the update notifier in Fedora 11 to install the security updates. It downloaded everything and applied the updates. Now the updater says Cleaning Up Packages. Its been stuck there for at least 20 minutes. What should I do? Should I just let it go and see if it ever finishes, or should I try rebooting the machine? Will I be left in a bad state if I do that?

"I tend not to use the frontend GUI for this reason on Fedora. Try sending the application a termination signal so it closes safely first (kill -TERM or simply use xkill), then give the yum command line tool a shot.

sudo yum clean all"
