Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

First of all, it seems from your output that you are using RHEL, therefore you should be contacting them for help.

Second of all, you have not given the command you entered for your second output, so it's difficult to say what's going on without us knowing what that command was.

I think you should contact Red Hat for help, or at least provide the above information, and also exactly what it is you're trying to do.

first run the command "top" and find out the process ID of yum.

now kill the process using the below command:

kill (process ID)

then reboot the system and after login run yum update.
