YUM Update crash
I have a machine running Fedora 19 which has been offline for several months. I need to do some work on it involving installing new software, so I put the machine online and ran YUM (using YUMEX) to apply updates.
After a while, Yumex froze. It claims to be "Running RPM Transaction", "Updating dracut-029-1.fc18.2.x86_64"
I can see that it has recently reported "cannot create regular file '/var/tmp/abrt/ccpp-2013-01-30-12:40:23-8123/count': No such file or directory" and a couple more similar messages. The most recent messages are hidden by the "Processing pending actions" dialog window.
What can I safely do with the system to recover it?
