Why does this Cydia error occur?
Actually this problem arises because of overflow of data in a data structure (According to Saurik). To give you an idea of data structure a brief concept is given: actually a data structure is local storage of any application, when an application run, it have some programming code and obviously a data structure that contains the local variables of whole application and tell application what to do in different conditions.
So the data structure is only able to hold 65,535 packages and when these packages exceed then it causes to produce this Cydia source error. Every Cydia repository when released has 40,000 packages and the only available space for extra sources is 25,000 bytes. So addition of more sources is the reason of this Cydia source APT error.
How to fix this Cydia error?
To solve this Cydia source APT error we have to remove few extra repositories sources which we added in Cydia. It is very easy to remove these extra Cydia sources, just open Cydia – - > Mange — > Sources — > Edit, then delete the some resources. When you are going to delete the extra repos then don’t remove the default repositories such as BigBoss, ModMyI and etc.
This Cydia source APT error occurs after the release of the Evasi0n jailbreak and before the evasi0n release there were no such type of Cydia errors.
