Description of problem:
The following webpage
has 2 issues.

1. It says "Refer to the man page for yum.conf for information on HTTP 
settings that may be modified for compatibility with nonstandard web proxy 
servers". There are no such information on man yum.conf.

2. I don't know if this is issue with uym or the documentation, but with our 
proxy I had to enter the proxy as

How reproducible:
Always following the instructions on the above page

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup URL as described 
2. Yum update fails
3. Add the / at the end. Yum update passes.
