This has been around since I have used Redhat 7. Probably a locked process. It
happens periodically. Doing the trick I mentioned but was shown better by the
other guy will make it so you don't need to reboot. Sometimes, rebooting won't
even do the trick, and you'll have to do it.

up2date locks for me, too. 

If synaptic works, use it. I haven't given it a run yet on Fedora. A little
trick I have is to run up2date, note the names of the packages, then grab them
through yum. You can use wildcards, for instance gnome*

There probably is a better way. I don't know it. I haven't been able to
retrieve either apt-get or synaptic through yum. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
