sudo apt-get update

    Can you ping any address outside, for exp ping www.google.com? – Tung Tran Dec 21 '15 at 9:33
  • Am running Ubuntu 14.04 on my virtual machine, I have seleted the network adaptor to share host's IP address, and I have set network proxy settings to share internet connection on Ubuntu machine. So I was able to use internet on my ubuntu machine. HOWEVER, I dont see any response when I do ping www.google.com from terminal. – user12345 Dec 21 '15 at 9:58
  • "cannot initiate the connection to extras.ubuntu.com:80" tells you clearly that it can not connect to ubuntu repos, so your Vm is not going out. Fix your connectivity and you will be sorted out. – ostendali Dec 21 '15 at 9:59
  • @user12345 you mean you set Network proxy in System Settings -> Network -> Network proxy? – Tung Tran Dec 21 '15 at 10:01
  • @TungTran: Yes. I have selected Automatic and set configuration URL to share the internet from windows host. Applied it system wide. – user12345 Dec 21 '15 at 10:04

Create /etc/apt/apt.conf to add proxy configuration for APT.

sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf

Add this line to your /etc/apt/apt.conf file

Acquire::http::Proxy "http://proxyaddress:proxyport";

Save it with Ctrl+X, Y and retry:

sudo apt-get update
  • Thank you. There is definitely an improvement than before. But I still see some of the errors like this: Err http://us.archive.ubuntu.com trusty-proposed/multiverse i386 Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 199.168.151.24 80] W: Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/trusty-proposed/restricted/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found [IP: 199.168.151.24 80] E: Some index files failed to download.
