Can you ping the proxy? If you have a proxy setup and its not present or wriong then updates will fail.

I suggest you run:

export http_proxy=""
export ftp_proxy=""

Just to be sure all proxies are removed.

I ran above two command, still not working

Somewhere on the system you have this proxy defined. You need to hunt it down and kill it

Otherwise i have no idea
