To fix this you'd have to SSH into your iOS device and (as root) run

chmod 755 /usr/bin/dpkg

If you don't have SSH installed already you'll have to reinstall cydia, unfortunately

NOTE: The fix is a port from a linux computer, so it might not be the right path, or effective at all. Please let me know if it works
