How to fix “Target Packages is configured multiple times” error

Coolstar recently released a new update for Cydia installer. Just like previous updates, this update, too, throws a weird “target packages is configured multiple times Cydia” error.

What’s new in Cydia Installer 1.1.30-coolstar6-2? 

The latest Cydia update adds (coolstar6-2) two new repositories as default – Packix and Hashbang (Chariz).

Though both of these are decent jailbreak sources, users aren’t too fond of Andrew Wiik and his team. Moreover, users can’t remove these sources once they upgrade, which goes against everything a jailbreak stands for.

If you would like to remove Packix repo, simply open Filza and remove its entry from /etc/apt/sources.list.d.

Users are also reporting a new error in the latest update. This error arises because of the addition of duplicate sources.

Here’s how you can fix it on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Fixing “target packages is configured multiple times Cydia” error

Step 1 Open Cydia.

Step 2 It will now prompt you to perform an upgrade. Upgrade to the latest version.

Step 3 You will now get the following error whenever you try to install any package.

Step 4 Go to Sources section.

Step 5 Tap Edit and scroll down until you find Packix repo. Tap the red “-” button and then tap Delete to remove both Packix repositories.

Step 6 Repeat step 3 for Hashbang Productions (Chariz) repository.

That’s all there’s to it! This error will no longer bug you. You can now freely install any package you want.

Here are a few more fixes that might come in handy for all Electra jailbreak users.
