hi i have tried re-jailbreaking my itouch like 6 times now and i get the same problem every time.

i go into cydia, and i upgrade the essentials, then i go to install winterboard, everything is alright.

Then i go in to install something and i get this:
Error: Prepare Archives
Method http has died unexpectedly
sub-process http received signal 9
method /usr/lib/apt/methods/http did

Can someone please help me
