If Cydia is running right now, and shows its own (base) packages, then it's running off a brand-new clean packagedb. Even if you can find the old one, I'm not aware of anything that would re-merge the new and old again.
You DONT want to replace the new packagedb with the old one from before. That would break things massively. Safest thing to do would be to start over from scratch with a clean firmware, re-jailbreak and start loading new packages all over again. If you don't wanna do that, you'll have to live with the semi-broken setup you've got now.
They are competing projects started by different developers and quite explicitly do not place nicely.
Icy is a descendant of Installer, the original package management system for Jailbroken iOS devices. Installer peeps never sat down with Cydia peeps, they got jellis of Saurik's success and felt he ripped off all their hard work, and deliberately set out to make something "better" to prove their point that Saurik was a dumbo-jerk. Icy had some nice eye-candy. Rockapp (Icy next-generation) had some nice features for developers (license tracking and copyprotection, and some support for ad content). But it never really took off, and Cydia remained more stable and was, since the beginning, designed and crafted more carefully.
I feel for Installer peeps who felt they got the dull end of the stick, but after 4 years its sort of hard to go back and undo what's done.
