Try rebooting your device and click refresh in Cydia once you phone is back up and running.

Do you have Ifile installed? Did you install something when this happened? Or is this right after the jailbreak?

It could have been a bug when you jailbroke it. Unfortanetly I don't know of a way to fix this problem, but maybe someone else on here does. Out of curiosity did you restore to ios 8.1.2 or did you update through settings via ota?

The iPhone is new, I did two iphone jailbreak yesterday and one of these is that given this problem on the other cydia works fine I think the problem happened when I did the jailbroken,thanks anyway

Ya the phone could have potentially been updated OTA hence the reason why it maybe is having issues. At least one of your phones are jailbroken :).

yes but unfortunately it's not mine and I can not restore my device or upgrade the ios because no jailbreak in recent iOS :-(
