    Help

    I am really new to all of this, could you give me some details on how you fixed this, I am experiencing the exact same thing right now, and I have tried everything and can't find anything online that has the same errors that I am getting, here are the 2 that I get everytime I try to install something while I am in Cydia.
    1. Subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 255
    2. Subprocess/usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

    I am very frustrated this happens everytime I try to install anything then I get a warning telling me to either remove the install or reinstall it, which of course does no good. If you could tell me how to fix this (please remember I am very, very new to all of this & I know nothing I am learning from YouTube and reading everything I can find) so please treat me as a newbie! I would appreciate it so much and you will be my hero for the day!
    Thank you so very much!
