    Default Cannot remove GRiP from Cydia queue
    I installed GRiP from the podulo.us repo and now Cydia keeps GRiP from the Spazio repo in the queue. When it tries to install it, it gives some overwrite error and doesnt install over the GRiP already installed from podulo. Both are the same and have the same version number.

    I've tried:

    Clearing the queue with GRiP alone in it
    Clearing it with some other package in the queue as well
    Uninstalling the GRiP from podulo (it first tries to install the Spazio GRiP before removing the podulo one and fails, not allowing it to go any further)

    This is very annoying as it requires a respring everytime after it fails and sometimes it is at the top of the queue and fails and stops before anything else in the queue can be installed!

    How can I manually remove it from the queue?

    Thanks in advance

    nope

    since it was added by the podulo source package, i have to remove the package that installed it.

    It's removal gets added under the installation of GRiP in the queue so it tries to install GRiP first, fails, and makes me respring and doesnt remove the repo!

    this is what I get when trying to remove the repo package

    If a repo has been installed by a repo package, like from the repository section in Cydia, it can only be uninstalled by uninstalling the package.

    Only the manually added ones can be removed by swiping to delete in the manage sources section.

    Is there a way to manually remove the source another way?

    that succesfully removed the repo, but again i couldnt remove grip from the queue and i couldnt uninstall the podulo (now its from unknown/local) grip either because it tries to install the spazio one first and makes me respring.

    is there no file that contains the cydia queue and i can remove grip from there?

    I had this exact same thing happen to me and I have found the answer... You have to get into your phone, ifile or SSH and delete a certain file...

    private/var/lib/dpkg/info

    com.zijric.grippreferences.list or something like that I wasn't paying close enough attention I guess, but then the error was resolved in CYDIA and everything works like normal, I know its a late responce, but I hope it helps...

    that file wasnt there... there was ...grip.list but no ...grippreferences.list

    but then i realized that i have Rock as well, so i tried to uninstall the podulo grip from there. it said that all the packages that i insalled after this grip problem were not installed correctly. i ignored this and uninstalled the podulo grip succesfully.

    then i was able to install the spazio grip that was still stuck in my cydia queue. it installed fine and also had to "set up" all the packages that i had installed since this grip problem

    now all is fine. thanks for your help buds

    I had this same problem with another app

    Problem:
    ******* for 3.1 from biteyourapple repo gets stuck in cydia queue, causing you to not be able to install/delete many packages. If you try to, ******* is first in the queue, it causes errors, so cydia stops without installing or deleting anything after it in the queue

    Explanation:
    I previously had ******* for 3.1 installed from another repo, i later installed ********** from biteyourapple repo, ********** from biteyourapple automatically tries to install ******* from biteyourapple. Therefore ******* from biteyourapple gets stuck in cydia queue when it has errors trying to place files that already exist.

    Fix:
    Unistall ********** from biteyourapple, respring, and the queue for ******* from biteyourapple goes away! Problem Solved!

    Thanks guys!

    Hey, you don't need to do that, neither have SSH installed. Just find the source in which your package stuck in the queue is located and remove that source. Restart cydia and you can add that source again.
    It just gets stuck sometimes, when some different packages that uses similar sources try to overwrite.

    Fantastic This works for me for another package. Just removed the xxxxxx.list from the directory, rebooted and cydia able to uninstall and install without a problem.

    Thanx mate,
    Ciao
