    Mine says "POSIX: Operation timed out" when I try to download normal packages, when I update it says a lot of things, including, "failed to fetch".

    I just jailbroke my iPod earlier today with redsn0w, it's not like I've been messing with Cydia or anything.

    My internet works fine in both Safari and on my computer. I was able to download a theme but I can't download Winterboard

    At the end of the thread, they say it's online, though. I'm still getting the same error. That thread is also from August 2009.

    I hate this stuff, I have so far been able to do absolutely nothing with my jailbroken iPod. I can't even add sources, it gives me an error related to my current sources.

    me too netdb errors

    "Error: Refreshing Data
    Failed to fetch http://repx.smxy.org/cydia/apt/dists/xena/Release.gpg NetDB: Open nodename nor servname provided, or not known"

    also with podulo

    but they work and all just can't get rid of the error.

    another oddity is that the icons for BB repo and another that I can't recall lost their icons when I had to reinstall cydia due to a crash which I fixed by cleaning out the update folder. if i remember correctly that's exactly when i started getting those error the last time restore.

    any ideas?
