The reason for that is because at least one of the sources you have installed in Cydia has become unavailable, either permanently or temporarily.
It could be that you have input the wrong URL when adding it or the source itself may have been closed. Sometimes source links break and that causes a lot of problems if the developers don’t pick up on it and, on occasion, the source may have another reason for not allowing you to connect. Whatever the reason, the best way to fix the error is to keep trying. If you still can’t get in within a couple of days and the same error keeps cropping it, the only thing you can do is delete the repo and here’s how to do that:
How to Fix AppVV Repo Error :
- Open Cydia
- Go to the menu at the bottom and tap on Sources > Edit
