    For the last week or so, every time I open Cydia I get the following messages:

    "Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of"

    "Problem with MergeList
    /var/lib/apt/lists/apt.modmyi.com_dists_stable_main_binary-iPhones-arm_Packages"

    "The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened"

    Any idea what this is or why I'm getting these error messages. :(

    Remove the sources you don't need until the error goes away. You have too many packages than cydia can handle. (Don't remove the default sources)

    Cydia can only list 65,305 packages. Your repos have more than that (combined). Install some of the unnecessary repos or repos that you don't use. Make sure you keep the default ones!
