I've been unable to install some packages for a few days due to the transaction error (according to the apper). Is there any different way to solve it, from waiting ? I've typed in terminal following commands but it s the same :

yum clean all
yum update
yum update --skip-broken      // on this one, it says dependency problems occurred on terminal
yum-complete-transaction    // here, it says no unfinished transactions left

Both VLC Player updates and Intellij IDE (and some others) keep giving this error while some just is installed. I'm stuck. Any help is appreciated. thanks! I'm on KDE and 64 bits.

Please using pastebin paste the full error plus yum repolist.

Try to remove everything except: fedora, fedora-update, rpmfusion* and paste the output please.
