Weird issue with cydia
Okay this is bizarre I was just downloading a theme from cydia all the sudden it said some mismatch and now when I load cydia there is nothing but a home page and in categories it only shows all packages. Now when I open that on folder it's empty, when I go to manage everything is empty smh any ideas?

It did it again now so here is the fix:
SSH into your phone then navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
Rename zodttd.list to zodttd.list.old and then respring your phone
Cydia will now work. Once they fix that source it will be ok to add it back but at least Cydia works properly without that source.

Ran into some problems with BiteSMS crashing my phone after updating lockinfo today. Thought it might be lockinfo screwing things up. Then Cydia wouldn't work right.
Finally i said heck with it and upgraded to 4.2 (from 4.1). Hopefully the wait isn't too long or I may mess with a tethered jb. I have some apps that need 4.2 anyways and get airplay now.
Probably will exchange it now. Home button was screwed up too.

Here's another solution:
Go to /var/lib/dpkg then delete "availabe" and "status" files and rename available-old to available and status-old to status.
Respring and reload Cydia and everything should work. Tested this myself.

nothing I've tried works
Hi guys. I just JB 4.2.1 yesterday and played around with it a little bit, so yup, I'm new at this. And now I am getting the same issue. when I go into Cydia>changes>refresh it starts downloading and then says updating database...downloading release.... and then Error: POSIX: operation time... and that's it.
I read a little about this and I need to install SSH on the phone to be able to fix this. How do I do that if Cydia doesnt work? Thank you, Sebastian
Update: I installed Iphone explorer and fixed the problem Thank God!!!
Update 2: It works only when I go into Cydia's main page to stuff like themes.. nothing else works. I tried both methods and it doesnt show anything. HELP?

I don't have a fix but I am having the exact same issue. Sometimes going to Changes and hitting refresh helps. It works temporarily and then the next time I launch Cydia, I get the Downloading Release.gpg forever.
Any help would be appreciated.
BTW, my first post. Glad to be here.
