To answer my own question it appears that the automatic proxy
detection does not work in the scenario above. To fix it, in the
VirtualBox VM I removed the file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/30autoproxy and
replaced it with /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/30manualproxy containing:
where 192.168.1.100 is the ip of the proxy server.
I am not certain that this is the "correct" way to do it but it seems
to do the job.
