I'm installing Ubuntu server 8.04 (hardy) on a machine. Te installation process goes well until the part of package installation.
The machine is behind a proxy. I configure the proxy correctly and the process fails. It said it was a problem trying to configure the package manager.
Checking the syslog in /var/log (Using Alt+F2) I found the following message:
E: Syntax error /etc/apt/apt.conf:2: Extra junk at end of file
I faced this problem in a regular machine before. Probably is missing the ';' on the end of the proxy string in apt.conf file.
I tried putting the ';' when the system asks me for proxy, but that didn't work.
I had the same problem trying Ubuntu Server 10.04 (Lucid)
I don't have access to /etc/apt/apt.conf (Probably is on the CDROM)
I don't want to finish process and continue because I'll have to install everything on my own, and this is a modified CD (the hardy, not the lucid).
Anyone can help me ?
