Gnome3 packagekit problem

if you are in a situation where you want to install software using packagekit but nothing happens or you see a message that it is "waiting in queue" forever try the following which worked for me:

Open terminal as root and type:

pkcon refresh

yum-complete-transaction

this will let yum complete it's unfinished business and then packagekit will get back to life.

Good luck
