Can't Download Anything On Cydia: No Packages?

I just re-JB my phone and am getting the following message when I open Cydia:

"Error: Database Encountered a section with no Package: header"

Anyone else getting this right now? Maybe a Cydia server issue?

Just checked mine, everything seems in order except for iMobileCinema, which has been giving errors for weeks. If you just rejailbroke, though, Cydia might be trying to download different indexes or something.

Didn't work for me. Still telling me "Encountered a section with no Package: header."

It happened to me when I added a source that I mispelled. I had to delete the source through ssh and when I try to update sources the same thing happens. It kills me

I was downloading something and was almost finished as "Reloading Data" comes up as usual after a download, then that message came up. It shows now that I don't have any sources, packages, nothing. I've restarted but that didn't work. I hope it's just a server issue.

I got fed up with Cydia being so flaky, restored my phone as new, and I'll be living without a JB. Just not worth the hassle and instability IMHO. I will miss Lockinfo and QuickReply SMS, but hopefully these features show up in the 4.0 update.
