Hello I am attempting to patch my linux machine through AWS SSM which basically executes yum command on the machine as root.
It gives me a error

"There are unfinished transactions remaining. You might consider running yum-complete-transaction first to finish them. Failed to run commands: exit status 1"

I have attempted
yum clean all
yum-complete-transaction
I get this
There are 1 outstanding transactions to complete. Finishing the most recent one
The remaining transaction had 244 elements left to run
how do i know which transaction is outstanding

There is only 1.

What happens if you try yum-complete-transaction at a root command prompt?
