    Unable to Update

    Hi!
    I am unable to update Ubuntu. I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and have never been able to update it. Update manager says, 'Failed to download repository information Check your internet connection.'

    I get the following in details:

    , E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    I have tried sudo apt-get update but I get the same error.

    My internet connection is fine and works perfectly.

    Because of this I am unable to install any new applications from Software Center too. Any help will be appreciated.

    Re: Unable to Update

    The error message says

    Code:
    Unable to connect to 192.168.1.1:8080
    So you probably have defined a proxy server, and that is not working.

    EDIT:

    Oh, it is marked as "Solved"?

    Thank you sanderj!
    I realized the proxy server issue just after I had posted this thread, that is why I marked it solved as soon as I had posted it. Anyway, thanks for your input.
