When you pick a grammar for which TM needs to install a bundle, it downloads the bundle in the background and waits for the grammar to appear.

If you have a local version of the bundle with different (default) file type bindings, this will eclipse the one being installed, which can lead to the process stalling, since the grammar never shows up.

Thus I recommend you look if you may have a local YAML bundle and/or try to pick an already installed grammar for the file.
