Aptitude will not use the HTTP Proxy environment variables. Instead, it has its own configuration file where you can set your proxy. This tutorial will show you how to set the proxy so that you may be able to install and update packages from remote repos.
If you filled in your proxy information during installation, the Apt configuration file would have been automatically updated. However, if you did not, then you must follow the following instructions.
Creating an Apt Proxy Conf File
Apt loads all configuration files under /etc/apt/apt.conf.d. We can create a configuration specifically for our proxy there, keeping it separate from all other configurations.
Create a new configuration file named proxy.conf.
Add the following line to set your HTTP proxy.
Acquire::http::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/"; Acquire::https::Proxy "http://user:[email protected]:port/";
Save file. And run
