    I got the same error regarding yum:

    "fatal,Cannot upgrade because yum is locked (/var/run/yum.pid has existed for 10+ minutes)."

    After killing all yum processes I tried to run "yum update" and receive the following error:
    Code:
    "Loaded plugins: fastestmirror

    Any clues? I'm using DNS only on this server. Version is 11.42.1 Build 12

    Hello :)

    Please check to see if the issue continues when updating with the fastestmirror plugin disabled. EX:

    Code:
    yum update --disableplugin=fastestmirror
    If this works, you can change "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" in:

    Code:
    /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/fastestmirror.conf
    Thank you.
