    If i'm not mistaken you have configured the proxy settings of your system to connect to on24.com on port 8080 ?

    Yamil - the answer you seek is in the error message you posted -> /etc/apt/sources.list

    A lot of time linux error are pretty descriptive. It doesn't hurt to copy and paste into google to search.

    Best Regards,
