I wish to update the local package index with the latest changes made in repositories and am using following command :
sudo apt-get update
On executing this command I get several error messages such as one below :
W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/precise-backports/multiverse/binary-i386/Packages 407 Proxy Authentication Required
What i did to in order to try resolving this issue is the following :
Open terminal and the file
/etc/bash.bashrsc sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc
and add at the bottom of the file these 2 lines :
export http_proxy=http://user:password@host:port/ export ftp_proxy=http://user:pass@host:port/
However it is still not working for me and am getting the same error.
Thanks in advance.
