Downloading installation package files fails
I have made sure the system proxy is correct and applied sytem wide I can browse www fine, writing this with it, but the package install fails here is the error as part of a adobe flash installation:
Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...untu4_i386.deb Could not connect to isa.proxy.IP.Address:8080 (isa.proxy.IP.Address), connection timed out
Now i can browse to the above without issue, really making life awkward in Linux land.
the system update gives this
Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...-i386/Packages 407 Proxy Authentication Required ( The ISA Server requires authorization to fulfill the request. Access to the Web Proxy filter is denied. )

Are you able to download some but not all packages, or is this a blanket "computer says no"?
I had a similar problem with our EMBC proxy when installing Ubuntu updates, I used to have to let it download half the updates and install those despite the rest failing and then run update manager again.

sounds like your proxy server requires a username and password to authenticate. Is this correct?
If so, in System>Preferences>Network Proxy have you typed in the username and password in the Details button next to Port: 8080?

Hi Yes I have set the system wide proxy details, It is a blanket computer says no to all packages.

Have you attempted to export the proxy from the .bashrc file including the credentials?
try in terminal:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/bashrc
Once the file has loaded go to the bottom and add the following:
hope this helps.
