Dnf / yum cannot connect to server / no route to host


My local connection is fine and dandy, however I cannot download any packages or software from terminal or application. Upon running dnf or yum or apt-get I receive "Couldn't connect to server https://mirror.fedoraprojectxxxx...[failed to connect to prox.server.world port 3128: No route to host]

I have searched all over for a solution, but nothing has worked. I just want to download my packages and carry on...however I am unsure how to overcome this problem, or how to begin resolving it.

Do you use a proxy of some type or proxy.pac file?

http://www.server-world.info/en/note...04&p=squid&f=2 shows how one might use a proxy. A proxy.pac won't work as they have never fixed that globally. You'd set dnf or yum config for the ip and port.

I WAS using Squid proxy via server-world. Squid is inactive/dead. I want to remove it entirely, but cannot do so via Yum remove. I went through the squid.conf files and the profiles and removed the code additions from server-world, yet the host problem still exists. No proxy.pac file is there either. How can I reinstate port connections?

? what ?

you do know that those belong to at least 3 different operating systems
dnf =fedora 23
yum = RHEL and clones and OLD and unsupported versions of fedora

and
apt-get = is a DEBIAN and family program

What operating system are you using ?
and it's version ?

I am using Fedora 23. Didn't know that each was OS specific.

Then this is the issue I'd think.

"I WAS using Squid proxy via server-world. Squid is inactive/dead."

What steps did you use to install or configure it, do you recall?
