Cancelled PRU update never finishes so unable to be removed.

Hello,

I run about 50 separate ZCM11 servers on SLES11 x64 and on a few there are old updates that have either been cancelled or aborted but never finish cancelling so can not be removed from the update manager.
I know these are not really causing an issue but I would like to get them all tidied up and have the same consistent patch level.
I have looked in /var/opt/novell/zenworks/content-repo/system updates and the GUID for the update in question isn't even there so I'm not sure what else to try.
screenshot of error.



TIA

Tony

Thanks Shaun,

Sorry for being a bit of a newbie but I'm not sure what command I'm supposed to do under zman sudo to remove the above "cancelling update"
