    It's probably just because the server is getting hit hard. I've seen it too. Just close Cydia and open it back up untill you don't get the message. It will go away. It did for me.
    Dirty as I wanna be!

    actually i think it was because of andydams old source. ( the one without the i.p address) and i tried adding his new one with the i.p. but it cant be found.. but cydia works fine without those sources

    Happening to me as well, closing and restarting (as mentioned) works.

    I do not have installer.

    He's totally right. I had to edit the source list by SSH my ipod and delete the cydia.list file that was under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    I had both the i.p address AND the andydams other one. I think its just a broken link now.

    that finally let my ipod touch to update freely. Everytime i tried to delete the repo under cydia it would just go to the black screen saying updating the sources and it would just say server timed out i would have to restart my ipod in order to get cydia back but i could never update the list.

    Hope it helps anyone that is having problems.
