I have just updated Cydia and now I am receiving an error that is allowing me to still use it but is annoying because it pops up every time I open Cydia. How do I fix this?

Hi,

in Cydia go to sources tap edit and swipe to delete the source mobilecinema.com and this should fix the problem.

If you still want the Cydia source use 

mobilecinema is used to allow ios devices to play some flash content, although nowadays most of the websites are ios compatible and this Cydia tweak may be skipped.

I hope this helps

Thank you.
