How can I get apt to use a mirror close to me, or choose a faster mirror?

I was trying to install emacs and I got a bunch of errors like this:

Failed to fetch http://tr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/emacsen-common/emacsen-common_1.4.22ubuntu1_all.deb  Could not connect to 127.0.0.1:8118 (127.0.0.1). - connect (111: Connection refused)

I tried apt-get update but it gives an error too. So I found out that port 8118 is used by Tor. Tor is not running right now and proxy settings are on automatic. What can I do?

The mirror might be having problems, see the question I just linked to pick another one. –  Jorge Castro Aug 16 '12 at 2:32
    
See this answer to disable the systemwide proxy. –  izx Aug 16 '12 at 3:32

That's the proxy address. So the problem is likely with his proxy/VPN. –  Marco Ceppi Aug 16 '12 at 3:28
    
Also, the port is 8118. –  hexafraction Aug 18 '12 at 17:59
