    Exclamation Can't install any updates. Need help ASAP!

    I can't install updates from the terminal or software center. When I do it from the software center i get the messgae "failed to install packages/files. Check internet connection." When I try to do it from terminal I get all of this (see below). Please help. I have online classes that I need to do and I can't do them because I need to update java and I can't update java because I keep getting these messages.

    Code:

    Looks like you are behind a proxy. See community/AptGet/Howto#Setting_up_apt-get_to_use_a_http-proxy

    I don't really understand how to do that. Can you explain?

    Sorry, it's not a proxy. I've looked it up and it's Click'n'Load from JDownloader that uses this port. I have no idea why it interferes with apt-get. Could you please post the output of
    Code:
    grep '^[^#]' /etc/apt/sources.list
