    Well, there's pretty much only one way to fix this.

    Delete old repos and dependencies that you no longer use. If you rarely install packages from the repository, it's better to just delete it and save yourself some space. This will normally fix your issues. From what I've read, the default repositories (ModMyi, BigBoss, ZoTTD, MacCiti, Telesphoreo) only have about 41k packages combined. Cydia is only capable of having 65k packages availiable at once due to the version of APT Cydia uses, and there is no way to increase it unfortunately. To hit the limit of 65k packages, you either have quite a few repos, or you have a couple large piracy repos (this is normally what will make you hit the limit). So if you have piracy repos, remove them and pay for your packages. If you don't have piracy repos, remove repos that you don't use and you should be fine.

    Credits go to britta for the explanation.
