If you are connecting to the internet behind a proxy in Ubuntu 12.04/11.10 or older, you can find this tutorial very useful because it will show you the steps to make your system update via proxy.

Getting Started

1. Open the terminal and issue this command:

sudo gedit /etc/apt/apt.conf

2. In this file, add this line and replace your own proxy details:
