add another repo source can sometimes bring back the missing repo's. Similar things have happened to me and doing that brought back all the sources. :)

Did you re-install Cydia, restore your device, or what? Need more detail.

Can you add another source in Cydia? Add this source in cydia and see if it will even add. cydia.bitesms.com

I had a similar issue yesterday....try deleting all but "partial" in private/var/lib/apt/lists via iFile. I then installed Cydia via the file from this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LXJkNEJCLA. Rebooted and when opening Cydia I ran the updates, back to normal.

That video shows a guy using two cracked apps to install a cydia .deb file from an unclear source. I especially like the part where he says basically "don't download iFile from this cracked app source, it might be defective, use this other cracked app source."
