    Hi guys.

    My Cydia has always worked perfectly, but when i then opened it yesterday and it started updating, it never stopped... I then pressed the cancel, and i got new packages. Tried updating again, and it didn't stop this time either... I then added a new source and again it never stopped.

    What can the problem be?

    Thank you!

    Sorry for bad english

    Forgot to mention, it has for a time been writing:
    Error: Refreshing Data

    And then a long list including

    ^^ That means that those particular repos are down, either temporarily or not.

    They were just down at the moment you checked. Sometimes, you can reload right after and they'll be up.

    If you want to stop the messages you can delete the sources. However, I wouldn't recommend deleting sources you're using or any of the sources you get when you install Cydia.

    Okay, so do you got any idea why cydia doesn't stop it's updating? And yes keeps going?

    Nope, I've never run into that issue before.
