This will remove all error msg in future. Have fun. Rem to give me a thanks
    Many thanks, it works.
    Went to /var/lib/apt/lists
    deleted the last source I tried to download as well as in the /partial

    Still kept coming up, I read you tip and sure enough it was the cydia.list file that still had it. I had to make a back up in iphonebrowser as it would not let me edit, I edit the back up and overwrote and the problem is now gone.

    Many Thanks!

    here's what I did:
    SSH into your iPod and go into etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.list. edit the file and clear out all the sources. You may want to write down your added sources before doing this

    There is no InsomniaSubstrate in Cydia so I don't know how I can get rid of this message. It doesn't just show up once, it shows up over and over again.

    After okaying that error another popup opens giving a list of sources that it was unable to fetch. I tried for a couple of hours and every time the list of error sources seem random.
    After all this my cydia shows blank with no sources, packages, changes etc.
    Any help guys. pls.
    hey I ssh'd into my iPod and went to etc/apt/sources.list.d/cydia.I then edited the file by clearing out all the sources in "cydia.list". Then replace the edited file with the original and cydia worked again

    Default Fix Cydia pre-depends and missing sources, packages
    This worked for me with an iPhone 3G running 3.1.2 (that also was giving the "problem parsing dependency pre-depends" error) as well as an iPhone 3GS running 4.1 (requires SBSettings):

    Close Cydia
    Open SBSettings by swiping status bar
    Press "Processes" icon
    Close all open processes (I had Mail, Phone, and Safari)
    Press "Free Up Memory" button
    Close SBSettings and open Cydia

    If you have the pre-depends error, click ok to it and following errors and wait for Cydia to load completely. In my case, updates to Cydia now showed up as well as all sources and packages. I updated and was good.

    Many thanks, it worked for me too! I have restored and rejailbroke in the past. So great to know that there is a quick fix to this issue!
    Went to /var/lib/apt/lists

    Editing /var/lib/apt/lists and removing the offending repo helps, however the problem reoccurs when another repo was added afterwards for some people, it seem to restore everything else, even the one removed. In my experience, this cydia problem only happens with repos i've added myself.

    Best solution for me? Cyfix FTW! Best way to clean all traces of any troublesome repo, bad url, etc. I just keep a list of personally added repos handy somewhere in case I need to nuke them. There's no deleted repo coming back after that.
