Debian Lenny update problems

Hi everybody!

I have a very big problem, I can not make any updates on my debian lenny.

I get everytime this errors with apt-get update:

deb http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports main contrib non-free

and when I make for example
Code:
 wget  http://www.backports.org/debian lenny-backports

I get this message:

Code:

Connecting to 192.168.65.146:8118... connected.
Proxy request sent, awaiting response... Read error (Connection reset by peer) in headers.
Retrying.

Please can anybody help me?

Thanks and greetz magge

There's apparently a problem with the way you connect to the net vs. what you configured. From the output you posted it seems that you configured the system to use a proxy for HTTP connections, but that machine apparently doesn't know it's a proxy.

Try running
Code:
unset http_proxy
aptitude update
