Hi Vishal,
can you set your proxy details in your Internet Connection,
rather than in Firefox settings.

what is your method of Internet Connection?.

so, once you changed the settings in the Network Proxy,
- can you now surf the Internet, without changing any settings in Firefox?.

what happens if you goto:
- Update Manager - Edit - Software Sources,
Mirrors - click on each one & see what repository sites, are available.

if that then works, click on the fastest site.
- then on "update cache" icon, on the Top RHS.
then again, on Refresh.

& see if there is now anything available to update.
