    I get "error: database. Encountered a section with no package: header"

    is that a problem with cydia or something wrong with my device?

    Thanks

    Something wrong with one of the repos you have installed.
    Most likelly it's the Modmyi repo if you had it installed.
    Remove it thru ssh.

    How would I remove it? Where can I find the files? Can I use ifile to remove it?

    Thanks

    update: went into private/var/lib/apt/lists using iFile and deleted all files except partial folder. That fixed the problem

    Glad it worked out.
    Mine was doing the same about a week ago.

    After removing this can you add it again and there is no problem?

    Nope. Went into "Changes" screen in cydia and performed refresh and it re-added all the default repos.
