Will yum-complete-transaction wipe out my system?

Frankly speaking, I was also pondering this question as well.
After I read: yum-complete-transaction should be run??? Many apps to be erased…., I tried it myself.

Conclusion: yum-complete-transaction can wipe out your system, but you got a chance say no.
It just do some check an revert some transaction, but it will ask you to confirm, just like the normal yum without argument ‘-y’. Say ‘n’ to reject the transaction and it will clean up the completed transaction file.

In case it encounters “OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: “, just create an empty file yum-complete-transaction asked and rerun it.
