When I try to do
sudo apt update it idles with a
0% [Waiting for headers] [Waiting for headers] message and does not run for a long while. After several minutes the terminal spits out a line indicating that the update got ignored. E.g.:
Ign:66 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-udates/universe i386 Packages
then moves on to the next one where the same thing happens again.
I've tried a couple of things including manually editing
/etc/apt/sources.list based on this: Updating Ubuntu & understanding errors thrown by APT, change the mirror site based on this:Stuck at 0% [waiting for headers], and cleaning apt's history based on this: Ubuntu problems on update....:/
I'm on Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (xenial).
I am behind a corporate firewall, but i have the proxy parameters set up in
/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/95proxies according to this: How do I configure proxies without GUI?.
My internet seems to be connected, i can get ping responses from
I tried to do this with disabled firewall (
ufw disable), with the same -negative- result.
I kinda out of the ideas here, any help is appreciated.
