I recently installed ubuntu 18.04 and wanted to install sublime. Howver I tried running sudo apt-get update before that and I get the following output

I am connected via proxy and the internet working fine on browser. I tried the following as well :

m@m-Lenovo-ideapad-500-15ISK:~$ ping archive.ubuntu.com

env | grep proxy returns the following:

ftp_proxy=http://proxy.iiit.ac.in:8080/

Note that apt-get update is working fine without proxy on my mobile hotspot but not via the proxy on my lan / wifi. How do I fix this ?

Trying to install sublime gives the following error :

The issue is that the proxy settings are not being passed to the "sudo" level. You are able to ping and wget stuff as a normal user since you have the http_proxy and https_proxy settings set for that current user. When you use sudo, those environment variables are not passed to the elevated user.

The solution is to use -E with sudo to pass on those environment variables to the elevated user.

For example, do the following:

sudo -E apt-get update

It should work.

The following work as a charm :

Append this in ~/.bashrc file

alias iiitproxy='export http_proxy="http://proxy.iiit.ac.in:8080"; export https_proxy="http://proxy.iiit.ac.in:8080";export ftp_proxy="http://proxy.iiit.ac.in:8080"; echo "Acquire::http::proxy \"http://proxy.iiit.ac.in:8080/\";" | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf'

then run the following in your terminal:

 source ~/.bashrc 

to refresh terminal and,

iiitproxy

I am not too sure what is different here, but it worked

For 18.04, make a new file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy.conf

Write your proxy settings in this file, for example:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/"; Acquire::https::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/";

and it works.

For 18.04, make a new file in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/proxy.conf

Write your proxy settings in this file, for example:

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/";

Acquire::https::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/";

It's work for me
