We stopped using a proxy for internet access for our Ubuntu 18 servers and everything is working fine, except that the unattended security upgrades are failing with still trying to use the proxy settings and I can't workout where it's picking them up from..
Previously the proxy setting had been set in /etc/environment, but these have been removed, I've set
Acquire::http::Proxy "false"; in /etc/apt/apt.conf which was required to fix the manual running of
apt get update command (this works fine now).
However the /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log are showing:

We have a few Ubuntu servers that were rebuilt more recently that never had any proxy settings configurated at any time and these are working okay too, so that's why I assume there's a residual caching of the proxy settings somewhere, but I don't know where that would be. Or where do I need to explicitly tell Ubuntu to not use a proxy in order to get this working again?
