    Your girlfriend's house
    1. Run Cydia.
    2. Search for gzip & reinstall.
    3. Search for bzip2 & reinstall.
    4. Cydia goto Changes & click Refresh.
    5. Wait for Cydia to refresh.

    Not sure if you came across this on the net as well..

    1- Get your way to the file and directory structure of your iPhone (through SSH or iFile or Mobile Terminal ...)
    2- Look for the /var/lib/dpkg/ directory
    3- You should be able to find the following files: available, availble-old, status, status-old
    4- Rename "available" to "available-bak"
    5- Rename "status" to "status-bak"
    6- Rename "available-old" to "available"
    7- Rename "status-old" to "status"
    8- Start Cydia , make sure that you allow Cydia to load completely first (just to be on the safe side ), try to install some apps.

    there's a couple steps that you have to complete to get this issue resolve.

    1. Restart your Device or turn it off and turn it back on.
    2. As soon as you see the apple on the screen press the up volume key and leave it pressed until the Device load to your lock screen.
    3. Open cydia and try to install whatever you have in the changes section you might be able to accomplish this from the very first time, if not you're going to receive an error saying "PKG LOCKED" after this try to install everything again and is going to work.

    I'm a lover of everything apple and I have learned a lot from a couple Devs and as I learned I can help you guys too. you can reach me at:
