    Need a step-by-step solution [apt-get won't work]

    Hi everybody!

    I'm having problems using apt-get behind a proxy. I've read a lot of threads and I tried many things, but nothing actually helped me further.

    What's the problem?
    In a ubuntu meerkat installation
    Code:
    Linux ubuntu 2.6.35-24-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 2 01:41:57 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
    inside a VM (VM Ware Workstation) apt-get produces the following errors:

    Code:
    john@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get update
    [sudo] password for john:

    What works?
    Actually the access to the internet works. The VM is bridged and receiving a NAT address. I used the System>Preferences>Network Proxy to set the proxy values. I'm having access to the internet, this is actually posted right out of the VM. I've tried if wget runs. It does. It runs even with the IP address of the error message (137.226.34.229):

    Code:
    john@ubuntu:~$ wget 137.226.34.229
    --2011-01-04 01:46:56--  http://137.226.34.229/

    I'm not a complete newbie, but I still have some problems figuring out, what to do when I'm stuck. So a step-by-step analysis or a way respectively would be great, so that I could participate and learn from it for any further problems in the future.

    What I already did:


    • I checked /etc/resolv.conf

    Code:
    # Generated by NetworkManager
    domain localdomain
    search localdomain
    nameserver 192.168.43.2
    But whenever I add an entry to the resolv.conf file, the NetworkManager erases the entry after a reboot and the file looks again like above.
    • I changed the source in the Ubuntu Software Center to diverse sources without success.
    • I entered the proxy into apt.conf:

    Code:
    john@ubuntu:~$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf
    Aquire::http::Proxy "http://www.my-proxy.de":8080;
    • A lot of other little things out of several threads but with the same result. No success...

    So right now I'm really kind of frustrated, because I've tried a lot, but I'm out of ideas and hope.
    Another hint could be, that everything works just fine, if I am connected via a different WLAN without any proxy settings at all.

    Any suggestion and hints are pretty appreciated!

    On this.... you need to set that in the connections properties. Under IPv4 settings, change it to DHCP (addresses only). The boxes to enter a nameserver will be available at that point.

    Okay, besides that this doesn't solve the problem, I can't change the settings right now, because of a well known bug: The authentifcation window after changing the settings won't go away. And I can't update because of the upper problem.

    I had a similar problem with linaro. If you're using apt-get inside a chroot jail and it can't see /etc/apt.conf, proxying doesn't work. It really made my head hurt because everything else I tried using proxies did work!

    Re: Need a step-by-step solution [apt-get won't work]

    Okay, I puzzled it out on my own by adding one line to apt.conf:

    cat /etc/apt/apt.conf
    Acquire::http::'proxy "http://www.my-proxy.de":8080;
    Acquire::ftp::'proxy "http://www.my-proxy..de":8080;

    PS: Please remove the "'". It's only there because : P would mutate to this:


    That did the trick!
