Hi all,
anyone might know where PackageKit is getting its http proxy config from?
It may be me just be being clueless but it seems to be stuck with one configured, leading me unable to update.
I was playing around with privoxy for a weekend but removed it and cleared/defaulted the proxy settings,
but PackageKit doesn't seem to want to let it go.

To be more clear:
  • I used the Proxy section in System Settings to manually set a http proxy initially.
    (which worked as expected, was also the only place other than the browser that i used to configure use of a proxy)
  • but setting it back to "no proxy" Discover/PackageKit seems to be stuck with the last http proxy config. (even after rebooting or making a new user account)
  • I can set another http proxy back within System Settings and Discover/PackageKit will seem to reflect the changes on refresh.
  • no http_proxy set in env, neither within /etc/environment or /etc/PackageKit/PackageKit.conf.

I have the same problem, there doesn't seem to be a solution. I have been trying to fix it all day, I tried reinstalling Discover as well. Didn't work.

Can't install new software either.

You'll wanna click on 'About' in the bottom left and then 'Report Bug' in the top right and file a bug report against discover. I am pretty sure it doesn't forward proxies to the underlying packagekit daemon.
