Apt-get won't work through NTLM authentication. If your proxy used that then you'll have to run a local proxy which handles the authentication for you.

You might be right about the NTLM authentification - isn't this suggested by the error message of:

Can't you just enable Basic auth on ISA server? That's how I do it here with Squid.

I have no access to the server, and the IT manager and I don't speak if we can avoid it, which makes things difficult!

I have zero chance of getting him to assist me in updating my Linux laptop through 'his' server.

What's your position within your school btw?

He hasn't got a clue - we are a large (and rich!) Independant school, and yet have only the useless online biblio.net email service, no online messaging, No Outlook, or diary facilities, or contact lists. If I want a fellow member of staff's email address I have to put a piece of paper in their pigeon hole asking for it!

You want more?
How about the IT manager bought a load of new network PCs along with some lovely widescreen 1440 x 900 resolution TFT screens. However, none of the computer graphics cards support this resolution, so every screen is run at 1280 x 1024 giving distorted text and graphics! I sent my departments back and refused to use them.
I could write pages more, but would end up screaming with frustration if I did - welcome to my IT hell!

I'm not sure if anyone sorted this out but if not take a look at:
ISA proxy authentication woes Utcursch
Download this file and scp it to your Ubuntu box
Then : chmod +x ntlmaps_0.9.9.0.1-10ubuntu1_all.deb
Then : dpkg -i ntlmaps_0.9.9.0.1-10ubuntu1_all.deb
This should install it.
If you need dependant packages you will need to install them as well.
Hope this helps someone. It worked for me here.

could you post the contents of apt.conf then I may be able to help you
to be fair you will need a local proxy
in yum.conf you can add a line like
the http:// before the ip address is important as is the port and the last /
hope this helps
