No, it's a "transaction set" run. These are yum shell commands - yum has
its own shell that you can access using "yum shell".

$ yum shell
Setting up Yum Shell

    commands:  clean, config, exit, groupinfo, groupinstall, grouplist,
               groupremove, groupupdate, info, install, list,
               localinstall, makecache, provides, quit, remove,
               repo, run, search, transaction, update

> help ts

    ts arg
      list: lists the contents of the transaction
      reset: reset (zero-out) the transaction
      solve: run the dependency solver on the transaction
      run: run the transaction
