upgrading problem using konsol or kpackage
I'm trying to upgrade/ install a few bits and bobs on my 8.04 ubuntu. If I use kpackage it never manages to connect with the gb. archive and if I use sudo apt-get install (package) in konsole I have the same problem.It never gets beyond 0%. My system works through a proxy address and I have tried to enter the proxy a few times now but with no joy. Does anyone know which is the correct method of entering the proxy address. There seems to be more than one package/method to do this , but so far none have worked for me. Needless to say I have a good internet connection or you would not be reading this., but of course firefox allows you to set up a proxy address within its own setup.
I have cross posted this from the installation forum as I realised it may have been in the wrong place. If this breaks the rules then I am sorry!
