E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

hmm

I don’t know what to make of those errors. All I can think is that you’ve configured an incorrect proxy server.

Similar problem...

Also running Karmic, also getting error lists like above. However I notice that the box for the default FTP proxy in my System>Preferences>Network Proxy is greyed out since in order to use the web on campus I have had to configure to Auto (http://uct.ac.za/cache-pac). Could this be related?

Firefox doesn’t use the Gnome

Firefox doesn’t use the Gnome proxy settings (last time I checked), so there’s little point setting the PAC file there (also, you have an incorrect URL).

If you can’t solve this (and you are having this problem on a laptop), come visit me in CS300, and I’ll have a look.

actually

This is almost certainly because you are using the UCT pac file in your gnome proxy settings. Don’t do that, change it back to direct (or go through a cntlm / ntlmaps)

serves me right.....

…..for following instructions issued by ICTS!!

I restored my proxy setting to Direct and the connection still works. Thanks for help, will let you know if any further problems ensue.

By the way, what is/are cntlm/ntlmaps?
