E: Syntax error /etc/apt/apt.conf:4: Extra junk at end of file


Error Scenario: When you do apt-get update in ubuntu you got the following error ” E: Syntax error /etc/apt/apt.conf:4: Extra junk at end of file” after configuring proxy in /etc/apt/apt.conf

Solution:

The solution for the above problem is you may forget to make a “;” at the end of the line.

Eg:

Wrong syntax: Acquire::http::proxy “http://192.168.96.0:808/”

Correct syntax: Acquire::http::proxy “http://192.168.96.0:808/”;
