Not valid syntax for setting the system proxy variables.

Find the place you configured it and remove.

The menu entry:
  "System" -> "Preferences" -> "Network Proxy"
is the proper place to set it in Ubuntu with GUI.

/etc/profile is where system-wide exports are set on command line boxes.

~/.profile for per-user settings on command line boxes.

If you have not set it there, $DEITY only knows what you did.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.3
