    I don't know if this has happened to everyone but I need help with this when I try to add a source on cydia these errors pop up (these errors are in order as they appear)

    Error: Refreshing data
    The method driver
    /usr/lib/apt/Http could not
    be found.

    This pop up repeats again after the first one.

    Then when I try to download packages these error windows pop up
    *note* the first pop up isn't the first one it's the second one *couldn't read the first one*

    *second error*
    Error: Running
    Sub-process/usr/bin/pkg returned
    an error code (1)

    *third error*
    /var/cache/apt/archives/firmware-
    sbin_0-1_iphoneos-
    arm.deb
    Subprocess pre-installation script
    returned error exit status 1
    *this window remains for a while after you press "okay".

    So if any knows what to do please help.
    I'm trying to make themes thru Fugu and Openssh if that's any help.

    I had the same error code (the Http one!) and had no luck with different methods that were suggested (changing the http to Http or HTTP etc), I ended up re-jailbreaking the iphone!! sorry, i know this isn't the answer you are looking for!

    repos, like any website, have downtime, crash, and get overloaded. As many have said, with Spirit being released, there is a massive increase in cydia traffic and the repos are very very busy.
    All you can do is wait it out.
