    Was really helpful……
    I just want to know what exactly we are doing by executing the above commands??

      The “yum clean all” command will not only remove cached packages, but also any headers.
      Totally flush out everything in case there are obsolete headers – which can also take up space. The reason it takes a little longer next time you run “yum update” is because that cache of headers needs to be replaced
