I am trying to kill a held job by using "condor_rm -all" or "condor_rm <jobid>", but both of them

and it didn't work too. How should I clean this job?

It looks like this is a Globus job. Condor won't remove the job from the queue until it knows the job has been canceled on the remote side. It's putting the job on hold to tell you that it can't talk to the remote side for some reason. If you want to take the job out of the queue anyway, you can run 'condor_rm -f <jobid>' while the job is in X state.
