Exclamation Terminal Konsole locked in Fedora 8


Ive got this strange problem that whenever from the last two days i try to execute any command from console it gives this strange message :-

Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid:another copy is running as 4805.
I tried logging in as root to execute but the results where same!
It is happening both in gnome and kde!

and many other applications also are not working such as the software updater and add/remove software!

Please suggest what to do?
