ALL the links?? I find that pretty hard to believe, but if it is, then there's no way to do it from that internet connection. you'd need to obtain them from a different source, and bring individual deb packages in and install using dpkg.

right, well are you asking for help about making this work, or do you already know why it's not working, as you said in the first post? That just looks like a DNS issue, so either you need a local global DNS server, or make the proxy resolve it for you.

Either set your http_proxy environment variable or set the http proxy in your /etc/apt/apt.conf

Example apt.conf entry
Code:
http::Proxy::192.168.1.1:8080/
where I've made wild guesses at your proxy IP and port number.

Read the apt.conf man page for details.

I do not think there is any need to block your system repository links in proxy. As an administrator and Ubuntu user myself, I feel it pretty useless. Unless it is required to save lot of bandwidth. But it still does not seem to be your problem. Even if you are behind a proxy, you can still tell your synaptic to use proxy. If you are not able use internet completely, then as Chris said, check your DNS settings.

Unless I have completely missunderstood the OP, he/she is behind some sort of firewall (outside of their control) which provides and http proxy server that the OP must use for http connections.

OP: can you confirm/clarify your situation.

Well yes, it could be. Some squid running iptables, may be. But squid is mostly used to control internet and filtering. But if you do not need to share internet then why even use proxy?
I think OP needs to come and re-phrase his question or better give more details about the issue.
