Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I tried all the solutions on this and still having an issue.

I am behind a proxy so I have updated /etc/apt/apt.conf with my proxy settings and I have removed the old lists with sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf.

However I still get the following:

sudo apt-get update

What kind of internet connection do you use? –  jP_wanN Jul 12 '12 at 12:27
    
Ethernet connection in the office. Goes to a Sophos proxy –  Fudztown Jul 12 '12 at 12:32
    
Try going to gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise-security/main/… and downloading files with your browser (just to check if it works), proxy might be blocking your updates. –  Krzysztof Hasiński Jul 12 '12 at 12:48
    
works fine in firefox.. trying to see if there is other proxy setting for the terminal that it's looking for? –  Fudztown Jul 12 '12 at 12:54

You have to set up apt-get correctly to be able to use it behind a proxy:

Looks like it's down. I like to use http://www.isup.me/ to verify if a site is down or not.

it's an internal Proxy.. It's up or I wouldn't be able to write this to you now :-) –  Fudztown Jul 12 '12 at 13:17
