When trying to update or install via synaptic, it fails to fetch and
the reason is:
Could not connect to localhost:4001 (127.0.0.1). - connect (111 Connection refused)
What's my problem?
This showed that anon-proxy was using port 4001. SoCode:sudo grep -r 4001 /etc
The mystery for me is how anon-proxy got installed. I neverCode:sudo apt-get --purge remove anon-proxy
heard of it and did not intentionally install it. Was it
part of an automatic upgrade? Part of a Firefox add-on?
I don';t know, But removing anon-proxy did the trick.
