2. Upgrade Cydia
From here if you haven't run Cydia in a while, or this is your first time running, you may get a notice about "Essential upgrades". These are upgrades to the Cydia application itself that may be required for installing new packages and apps:
* Press Upgrade Essential
* Press Confirm to begin the download and install
* Wait for Complete and press Close Window
* Press the home key, and then re-open Cydia to continue


NOTE: After installing essential upgrades, it's always a good idea to restart Cydia to make sure the new packages are reloaded. Repeat Step 1 to open Cydia again (though you probably already guessed that).

Great article. I just recently Jailbroke my phone and Cydia was downloaded automatically. I'll check this source out.

Simply go to changes under the bottom bar, and click to update, then you can install all the updates at once or one at a time by clicking on them.
