i have a problem with my cydia.
this is what i get:
iPhone:~ root# apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
The following packages will be upgraded:
1 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/112kB of archives.

dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 23 package `sudo':
field name `/etc/sudoers' must be followed by colon
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)
what is the problem, and how can i solve it?
I already tried:
- apt-get clean
- various reboots
- visudo for editing that /etc/sudoers file
PLZ, anyone, help !
Ok, solved alone.
For some reason there is a status-old file in the /var/lib/dpkg directory.
so i replaced old one with that one.
cp status status_bak
cp status-old status
if everithing goes ok like it went for me then:
but if i did, some others will.
Hope this will solve somebody's problem.
