You can try iCleaner if all else fails. Just turn enable the Cydia toggles and turn off anything you don't want cleaned.

I apologize, I must of overlooked it

In my /usr/bin folder, there's some dpkg files which I have zipped here: [link removed] (I'm not sure which dpkg files I'm suppose to give you unfortunately so you can take this with a grain of salt or do some google search about it)

You can try replacing them and see if it fixes the problem. Btw, make sure owner permissions is root while group permissions is wheel

edit: you can see if you could try reinstalling via the /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall method

the .deb file is as follows: http://apt.saurik.com/cydia/debs/dpkg_1.14.25-9_iphoneos-arm.deb

you download the .deb file, put it in that autoinstall folder and reboot twice. browse to that autoinstall folder and see if the deb file is gone now. if it is, then you should have successfully reinstalled debian packager

If i can get the 3gmy3g.plist i think i can solve this thing out
i doubt that is the issue, this is a problem with debian packager. when you said same error, was the deb file still in that autoinstall location?

you can try resetting Cydia
You will loose your custom repo's but all else should remain


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

Delete the file "cydia.list"

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"

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.
