    The problem is that I can't update my distro using apt-get update.

    When I do the apt-get update from the terminal, I got this;

    # apt-get update
    0% [connecting to (]
    Then after awhile, I got a lot of messages like;

    W:  Failed to fetch archive.... Unable to connect to http:
    I am behind a proxy and although I have set the proxy from the K-Menu->Settings->Internet & Network->Proxy, I still can't get to update.

    Any help is very much appreciated.
