Sounds like the usual "stale locks" issue with RPM since Red Hat Linux
8.0.  Erase the temporary files in /var/lib/rpm after you terminated
yum (and what you refer to as "related processes"):

  rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db.*
  rpm -vv --rebuilddb

If that doesn't fix it, post your yum.conf, so we know what servers
you tried to access.
