How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have first generation iPad with cydia. It's been about three years since any updates have been done. I want to download some apps but cydia doesn't even open up correctly. So how can I update cydia and if I do update cydia do I have to update iOS. I have no idea what I'm doing I bought it this way
