How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, I get this error very often. First time it was on 3GS (I had approximately 10 repos added), Cydia wasn't working, I tried deleting some cache files in the showed folder and eventually destroyed the whole app. After some time I reinstalled everything, it was fine till today. The same happened with my iPad Mini I bought today. I only added 3 repos to both of them. This time I deleted one of them and everything works fine, but I still want to add more repos. What should I do? This is how it looks:

Remove all the piracy repos.

No Spydar it does mean piracy.

You try getting that error without piracy....... Virtually impossible

But we don't know for sure that it is piracy.

It's true that we don't know for sure - it is technically possible to get this without pirate repositories, so it's nice to be polite about it, but practically, removing pirate repositories is the general fix for this. (It's best to stick to the default repositories - BigBoss, Cydia/Telesphoreo, ModMyi, and ZodTTD/MacCiti.)

Removec the piracy repos you added and cydia warned you about.

We don't support piracy here

You have too many repos. Delete some repos.

No. Cydia can only handle 65,535 packages. See here for saurik's explanation on it.
