Bug#895275: debian-installer: Incorrect installer proxy suggested format

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20170615+deb9u3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Installer from Debian 9.4 netinstall iso on "Configure the package manager" stage suggests HTTP proxy should be filled in the form of 
"http://[[user][:pass]@]host[:port]/";. But it will fail to work through proxy if you include trailing slash after port number. 
The correct form which works for proxy are without trailing slash, i.e.
Tested with proxy running polipo- on CentOS-6, other proxyies most likely are affected as well.
