hello couple of days ago i set a proxy for synaptic and then last night i disabled the proxy and tried to reload the list of packages.

but the proxy wasn't disabled and i couldn't do it with apt-get either.

I've already checked apt.conf and apt.conf.d/01proxy and they're empty.

does anyone knows that where should i check ?

thank you !
