It seems I cannot install anything (or dist-upgrade) since Retrieving Bug Reports seems to hang (tho I have an internet connection).  Is there a way to bypass this?

Do you want to continue (Y/n)
Retrieving bug reports... 0%
The reports never get retrieved, so I cannot do smxi (or apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade)

Are you sitting behind a proxy?

yes... but I can get without any problems.
All the pdiffs download, etc, and smxi (and apt-get) is happy.
apt-listbugs seems to be fussy.  Can it be disabled?

It seems that apt-listbugs has had a history of issues when behind a proxy...

You can suspend it by doing this

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10apt-listbugs
Change it from this

Code: [Select]
// Check all packages whether they has critical bugs before they are installed.
// If you don't like it, comment it out.
DPkg::Pre-Install-Pkgs {"/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs apt || exit 10";};
DPkg::Tools::Options::/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs "";
DPkg::Tools::Options::/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs::Version "2";
// AptListbugs::IgnoreRegexp "FTBFS";

to this and save it

Code: [Select]
// Check all packages whether they has critical bugs before they are installed.
// If you don't like it, comment it out.
// DPkg::Pre-Install-Pkgs {"/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs apt || exit 10";};
// DPkg::Tools::Options::/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs "";
// DPkg::Tools::Options::/usr/sbin/apt-listbugs::Version "2";
// AptListbugs::IgnoreRegexp "FTBFS";

Run apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade again and you should be good to go

bingo smxi-ing now.
btw i did set the proxies in the apt.conf file (tho I haven't had to in a long while).  The company I work for has some voodoo that auto configures the proxy.
Is there another place that listbugs looks for a proxy? (I even set the environment variable)

I looked at several posts regarding this (30-40) and no where did I see where you could manipulate a file within the apt-listbug setup to add a proxy setting
