i have 12.04 LTS but i have a strange problem from a while

every time i try to do an update an error window apears with "check your internet connection"

and i have tried to update file by file which was boring and very not exciting

finally I found 4 files those was the problem

libproxy1 (size: 57kB) libproxy1-plugin-gsettings (size : 22kB) libproxy1-plugin-networkmanager (size :7kB) python-libproxy (size:5kB)

by the way i tries to change the server and this problem still the same please give a way to end this problem because every time i need to update i have to look for those files and excludes them from the update .... try to look for them into 170 files (I did)

Just try to do it from console with these commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

If the later command fails, comment here with the a link to the full output on Ubuntu Pastebin please.

Actually the same problem happened again with the 14.04 and the 15.10 and i found out that the problem from the internet provider which forbid any file or words have "proxy" in it .. – LO11CH Mar 9 at 18:10
What? Seriously? Please, expose this faulty so-called provider so others will know. – Jorge Suárez de Lis Mar 10 at 23:26
