I fixed the issue, here is what I did:

1. Use WinSCP, Iphone Tunnel Suite, CyberDuck or whatever to SSH into your device and navigate to /private/var/lib/cydia
2. download metadata.plist
3. make a back up of the file just in case.
3. then edit it (you can dl PlistEditPro from apple to edit it for Mac, OR for PC, convert the file using this website Binary XML .plist converter - iAppCat then you will be able to edit it.)
4. Now open the metadata file in Plist Edit, Notepad, Dreamweaver, iFile or whatever, and search the file to find the bad url (Usually towards the bottom of this file) Delete the bad URL from the metadata.plist file. Save.
5. Now upload that back to /private/var/lib/cydia and overwrite the old one.
6. Now SSH to the folder /etc/apt/ folder.
7. Backup the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file.
8. Edit the cydia.list OR sources.list.d file with a text editor and remove the entry related to the problematic source.
9. Reup the editied file and overwrite the old one
10. Now in these folder: /private/var/lib/apt/list and /private/var/lib/apt/list/partial
look for and delete any files with the bad url.
11. Reboot and that should fix your problem.

Yes, you go into "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/" edit cydia.list and remove the bad repo in that file and all should be well. All those other steps aren't really necessary. Removing the metadata.plist file clears all of the changes under the "Changes" tab in Cydia and isn't really recommended, because it could screw up Cydia and not allow you to remove/add repo's in the future.

Thanx once again for the good advice. I also was having these annoying errors. This tip completely fixed my issues.

OK...that seems easy enough, but for future reference and to keep from this happening again, what causes these problem's in the first place? (So they can be avoided again).

It depends, these errors can be caused by different things. For most, it happens because you accidentally typed the wrong address when trying to add a repo. In that case, even though the repo never actually got added, it still gets added to that "cydia.list" file and gets read by Cydia when refreshing data. Other times it's just because the repo got shutdown for good and when you delete the repo from the list inside of Cydia, it doesn't actually get deleted from the file sometimes.

I just made this account to tell you a BIG THANK YOU!!!

This site rocks and ImpetuousRacer's method is excellent. If you are searching for a plist editor in windows, please try this one.

http://www.5starshare.com/free-download-70673.html

I searched a lot to find it (I use windows only) and it did the job perfectly! None of the sites that use uploading on plist files worked...

i did this and im still having problems sort of. its just annoying that i get this screen everytime i go into cydia and it does its refresh thing.


in manage sources it still shows bigboss modyi and zodttd but no packages associated with them. i cannot delete those sources in cydia. if i add them from add more package sources in cydia witch i have done so i can see those packages that go with them they appear twice. one with packages and one without. so really it seems that everything is fine except for that screen after refreshing. anyone with any ideas?
