How to fix some mysterious problems.

ipad Air 2, job at iOS 8..4. While using Cydia to load some recent tweets, loader failed with error "/bin/bzip2/"; Googled on this and found solution, as follows: Solution: 1- Get your way to the file and directory structure of your iPhone (through SSH or iFile or Mobile Terminal ...) 2- Look for the /var/lib/dpkg/ directory 3- You should be able to find the following files: available, availble-old, status, status-old 4- Rename "available" to "available-bak" 5- Rename "status" to "status-bak" 6- Rename "available-old" to "available" 7- Rename "status-old" to "status" 8- Start Cydia

Using ifile, tried to execute as above - I think I made a mistake in steps 4 to 7. Result was a more general error occurring any time I try to use Cydia. The diagnostic message is: "Could not open file /var/lib/dpkg/status -open (13: Permission denied)" HOW CAN I FIX THIS?
