    Hi,

    I jailbroke on 4.3.1 and restored my Cydia packages with Pkgbackup and now each time I run Cydia I get this after it's done updating packages:

    Any ideas how to get rid of it? Thanks!

    First try the contents of the partial folder first. This should clear it up if it doesn't try the rest.


    Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists/partial

    Delete all of the files in this folder

    posted by stlblufan in the other thread worked for me.


    Okay I managed to completely reset my sources (and Cydia generally). Here's how:

    If you don't have iFile, download it from Cydia.

    Open iFile.

    Navigate to /private/etc/apt/sources.list.d

    Delete the file "cydia.list" (click EDIT on the top right, select the file, and click the waste basket).

    Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists

    Delete all of the files in this folder except the one called "lock"

    Navigate to /var/lib/apt/lists/partial

    Delete all of the files in this folder

    Navigate to /var/lib/cydia

    Delete the file "metadata.plist"

    Close iFile and restart Cydia. You should be at the first screen you saw when you first started Cydia: What kind of user are you? Make your selection and Cydia will re-generate the default sources.

    Good luck.

    Create a "partial" folder? Reboot?

    I had same issue

    If you used the "merge sources" option instead of overwrite, you get the result you see.

    I followed another's suggestion to use PkgBackup again but only restore your sources this time. (uncheck everything else). When asked, select "overwrite". Cleared everything for me.
