The script /etc/network/if-up.d/wpad-proxy-update has been added a while 
ago to make sure that the proxy settings (in /etc/environment and 
/etc/apt/apt.conf) are updated at system boot (fix for bug #780461, see: 

If this script is removed, updating the proxy settings happens at the 
first DHCP lease renewal via 
/etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/wpad-proxy-update (up to 15 minutes 
after system boot). So the removal shouldn't make a big difference - if 
at all.

I have no idea how this can happen and how to fix it.
