yum transactions left


I tried a yum clean all but this still comes up when installing:
There are unfinished transactions remaining. You might consider running yum-complete-transaction first to finish them.
The program yum-complete-transaction is found in the yum-utils package.


Any ideas how to clean the cache?
I don;t want to run any of the transactions

No, doesn;t seem to. I just tried and then reran a yum install but it brought up the transactions remaining message again.

I also tried a yum clean all followed yum makecache but although the make csche worked, the transactions were still there somewhere??
