I get this on some apps. What does it mean and how can I fix it?

EDIT: added bigger screenshot hoping its readable.



It says: I wasn't able to locate file for xxxxxxx package. This might mean you have to manually fix it.

I've gotten this message on a few apps. This one is for FolderEnhancer. I purchased it on the iPhone and installed it okay but I get this error on the iPad. I have however seen this error on the iPhone for other apps.

Please help. Frustration seeping in :(

The servers are probably still being hammered from all the new Jailbreakers. It wouldn't surprise me if you get strange errors until things die down.

Have you tried rebooting the phone?Googling seems to suggest this can fix it.
Yes I did. It worked once or twice and other times it didn't. After trying for the third time the above app finally installed without errors. I think the poster above may be correct in that the servers are being slammed ATM.

Cydia server(s) are just busy. I got the same error. Just keep trying...it will eventually go through as it should.

Thanks guys. I've kind of figured that out. Almost all the apps I tried that didn't work eventually installed on the third or fourth try.
