Check which downloader is used by using -v, should be LWP.

Then you need to tell LWP to use the proxy, see man LWP:
       The following environment variables are used by LWP:

           The LWP::MediaTypes functions will look for the .media.types and .mime.types files relative to you home directory.

           These environment variables can be set to enable communication through a proxy server.  See the description of the
           "env_proxy" method in LWP::UserAgent.

           If set to a TRUE value, then the LWP::UserAgent will by default call "env_proxy" during initialization.  This makes LWP
           honor the proxy variables described above.

           The default "verify_hostname" setting for LWP::UserAgent.  If not set the default will be 1.  Set it as 0 to disable
           hostname verification (the default prior to libwww-perl 5.840.

           The file and/or directory where the trusted Certificate Authority certificates is located.  See LWP::UserAgent for

           Used to decide what URI objects to instantiate.  The default is URI.  You might want to set it to URI::URL for
           compatibility with old times.

I faintly remember that we documented this somewhere, but that could be
improved I guess.
