Get TinyUmbrella, which I assume you used, and set it not to ask Cydia for SSH files and instead contact Apple directly.

Alternatively, you go to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc" and remove the HOSTS file from there, just move it out of there, do your thing with the update and then move it back it in.

hosts are already set to apple, but check the hosts file and see if it works or not.thanks
