@ginggs I just reapplied the settings system wide using the graphical user interface and it fixed it, thanks.

The reason I edited /etc/environment by hand and did not use the GUI in the first place is that it does not allow to declare exceptions (the 'no_proxy' variable).

Here are the logs (Note the now duplicated entries in /etc/environment) :

$ cat /etc/environment
PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games"
https_proxy = http://webcache.name.fr:3128/
http_proxy = http://webcache.name.fr:3128/
ftp_proxy = http://webcache.name.fr:3128/
no_proxy='localhost,127.0.0.0/8,*.groupe.name.fr'

http_proxy="http://webcache.name.fr:3128/"
https_proxy="https://webcache.name.fr:3128/"
ftp_proxy="ftp://webcache.name.fr:3128/"

$ sudo -i set|grep proxy
ftp_proxy=ftp://webcache.name.fr:3128/
http_proxy=http://webcache.name.fr:3128/
https_proxy=https://webcache.name.fr:3128/
no_proxy='localhost,127.0.0.0/8,*.groupe.name.fr'
