Comment(by alsroot):

 For now, the http_proxy usage behaviour is simple, whatever {{Code|sugar-
 client* update}} command you call, for proxy related setting it uses the
 {{Code|http_proxy}} environment variable from the caller process. If
 {{Code|sugar-client}} was called with {{Code|-d}} argument by root user,
 it will be {{Code|http_proxy}} from root user process; if {{Code|sugar-
 client}} was called from non-root user, it will be {{Code|http_proxy}}
 from non-root user process.
