    All of my package installers, Icy, Rock, Cydia, are all not working!

    Rock shows 3 new updates, and I update them, but they either return an error, or they download successfully, but the 3 updates are still there after I respring! Same with Cydia, there are 5 new updates, but they either fail or they just don't go away! And if I try to download any new packages from either package installer, it just fails. Please help!

    can you tell us what happens when it "fails"?
    try doing this
    open up terminal
    type in
    apt- get remove cydia
    YES DO AS I SAY
    apt-get install cydia
    that should reinstall and hopefull fix your problem

    su
    alpine
    apt-get remove Cydia
    apt-get install Cydia
    
    The sudo command isn't a command anymore, Nburnes! (It's not in /usr/bin/ or whatever)


    And effectsdude has a space between apt- and get.

    Yeah, sudo has been gone for a while.

    It was a nice command.

    I managed to do the apt-get remove cydia command but when I try apt-get install cydia, it fails. dpkg error or something. Now cydia won't even open. it just crashes on startup
