    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

    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.

    Check the permissions of your dkpg files and make sure owner permissions is root and group permissions is wheel
