Use SSH or other iPhone file system browsing software such as iPhone Browser or iFunBox, and browse to the inside of folder /usr/lib/apt/methods and look for the http file, make sure the "http" file name letters are in the correct case (capital and small) if you have copied the error correctly, then it should all be small letters (if you find "Http" then change it to "http").
