Ubuntu To Stop A Proxy

2013-05-19  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


Does anyone know how to STOP the proxy for automatic updates? I recently configured for downloading at work (behind a proxy) but now I'm home again (no proxy). I'm fine with Firefox, and the System > Administration > Network thing, but all my updates still want to use the proxy. I'm starting to get really backed up, like 85 downloads that fail every time because I can't get the proxy turned off.
