Some (more) questions, for you:

    *	Do you have anything in the directory /etc/apt/apt.conf.d?
    *	Is there any reference to security.debian.org in /etc/hosts?
    *	What is the value of the environment variable $http_proxy?
    *	Do you have any iptables rerouting rules ("iptables -t nat -nvL")?
