I cannot use apt?

I am wondering if this is due to the proxy-server problems. Ny university
has some cache that needs to be specified for me to be able to ftp/http
outside the university.

I am basically clueless but I know that I could not use wget until I had
the proxy settings specified. Apt does not seem to have any of that stuff

Here is a sample output:

my sources.list file
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
deb http://www.debian.org/archive stable main

Output of my program
com5# apt-get update
Get http://www.debian.org stable/main Packages
