    Cydia has notified me there are updates for these two apps from Cydia/Telesphoreo(networking) and Cydia/Telesphoreo(development). I never installed trhese nor does it show that they are installed. What are these and should I update?

    yes they are both safe your fine cURL is from Saurik most likely installed when you set up Cydia. pcre was probable installed with another package as well but they are safe.

    PCRE (perl compatible regular expressions) are part of Webkit which is part of Safari so my guess is you downloaded a tweak for Safari or something in that nature?

    cURL is flexible multi-protocol file transfers and is part of Cydia and other apps.

    There are many other things you have installed that you prob don't know about unless you select expert view on the packages section of Cydia, just select simple ad don't worry so much.

    I am on simple. I actually rechecked when I got the second notification. Thanks to both of you for your quick responses.
