At my last job we went through a proxy via this method. The only difference is
that we exported our proxy settings first:
1 - export your proxy settings:
2 - run apt commands as needed, i.e.
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
We didn't use squid, but we used a http proxy, and this method worked well.
