Apparently, your APT configuration is set to connect using a proxy server. This server cannot be reached and that is what the error is about. How do we know that? Well, it should not connect to a local IP address for the Ubuntu mirror for downloading the packages. The combination with the connect to port 8080 instead of plain HTTP on port 80, this is behaviour of APT that can only be caused by proxy configuration settings.

I assume your proxy server isn't online anymore and you don't want to use it anymore.

  1. Find the configuration line responsible for it:

    grep -rni proxy /etc/apt  
  2. The results will list something like

    /etc/apt/apt.conf:1:Acquire::http::Proxy "";  

    What you see here is that in the file /etc/apt/apt.conf on line 1 APT is configured to connect using that proxy address. On your system filename and line are likely to be different.

  3. Edit the file with the line. Comment it (prepend it with a hash #) or simply remove the line. Use a text editor, e.g. nano (or any other of your preference):

    sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf  
  4. Save and close.

  5. Update the APT lists:

    sudo apt-get update  

Happy updating/installing.
