    Cydia repo errors, garanteed to fix and never come back, I find this easier.
    SSH Method

    Step 1. Open your SSH Client. (WinSCP for PC, Cyberduck for Mac)
    -1a. Enter your I.P address in the 'hosts' box. Your I.P address can be found by Opening SBSettings.
    -1b. Enter your Username and Password. The default username and password is : 'root' and 'alpine' (Changing root password is HIGHLY recommended.)

    Step 2. You are now inside the iPhone and can see all of the directories. Navigate to '/private/etc/apt/sources.list.d'
    -2a. Open it, and Delete all files that come up as a error on Cydia.
    -2b. Open Cydia.list for editing You will see lines that look like : deb http://i.danstaface.net/deb/ for example.
    -2c. Remove the line that has the offending repo URL.

    Step 3. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/apt/list and Delete all files that contain the corrupted repo in the name.

    Step 4. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/apt/list/partial and Delete all files that contain the corrupted repo in the name.

    Step 5. Navigate to : /private/var/lib/cydia and Open the metadata.plist for editing using a .plist editing program
    -5a. Search for the corrupted repo, and Delete all instances of it. It may appear More than once in the metadata.plist file.
    -5b. Save the file.

    I Know, lolz. I had this same issue for like ever. Did a bunch of searching and came up with this. It works 100%
    Issue is that if you do it any other way, when ever you add a new repo, the bad one comes back. Have to edit the metaplist and good to go.

    If you delete everything, then you will get nothing, your Cydia might not work properly.
