I keep getting an error when I try to update and thing in cydia... I can't download anything either the error reads as is "I wasn't able to locate the file for com.saurik.substarte safe mode package. This might mean you need to fix the package manually." I'm just a user for jailbreak not a developer nor hacker... If someone could helps out that would be great thank you. My email is thanks again

Remove what source?

Cydia substrate is in the Cydia/Telesphoreo repo, which you can't remove normally, for good reasons. Don't try it.
