Cydia usually gets updated to be compatible with different versions of iOS on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Cydia is maintained regularly and seldom gets any complain from its users. But now with the changing form of latest versions of iOS it becomes necessary to update Cydia more frequently. And due to this updates you might face a few problems sometimes and Cydia packages not show up.

Sometimes it also gives the message "Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of".

Wow, you exceeded the Cydia

Solution I - Open Cydia and delete all the added sources. For this go to var/lib/apt/lists and delete any sources that aren't the ones that come in Cydia already. Also delete the release and package files. Then go to etc/apt/source.list.d and open cydia.list and delete sources from there. Now respring your iOS device. Cydia should start instantly.

Solution II - Do try the above solution but due to some reasons if the above solution doesn't works then do try these steps and see of it helps -

2. Type in 'su' and it will ask for login
3. Use your ssh login password to login
4. Once your logged in type in 'cyfix'

Issue II - This is another issues that arises. Cydia packages are not loading. You keep trying to add a source or repository to Cydia using the "Add Cydia/ APT URL" option but it always shows error message as "Failed to fetch HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found".

Solution - This happens because the Cydia source you are trying to add is getting updated or is currently offline. You can't do anything in this except to wait. You can try to add another repository that serves the same purpose. It will get added instantly if its online. But if the repository is offline then you have to wait for sometime. It could be a few minutes, few hours or even a day.
