Description of problem:
In a disconnected environment a chartrepo cannot fetch a remote index.yaml file directly from a remote source, hence a (cluster-wide) proxy is used to retrieve the file remotely. However currently the chartrepo's httpClient() does not consider any proxy environment variable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.6
Steps to Reproduce:
1. in a disconnected environment, update the Proxy to use http/https proxy
2. create a HelmChartRepository pointing to a cluster-external chart repo
3. install a Helm release from the Developer Console
The action fails with "Error retrieving index file for"
A Helm release is instantiated
Verified with OCP v4.7.0-0.nightly-2021-02-04-031352
