Download debianutils, put it in Cydias autoinstall folder and reboot.
Likely it won't install because dpkg has errors and a restore in needed.

wah doesnt work :S i have to reinstall everything? is there a way to back up all the cydia installed software??

Cydia software should be reloaded fresh after a restore. What is needed is a list .
Another debian utility creates the list dpkg -l. Likely that won't work either.
The preferences for most cydia apps/tweaks are backed up by iTunes

it's kinda strange that just for a program file missing you need to reinstall everything :S

Not really. There are many files in computers that make the system unusable.
The issue is finding which ones are missing or corrupted. Even for experts, the
work required to determine the problem is usually far more than starting over.
