Got the same issue with http link for LiveUpdate server under Site Properties> Edit Source Servers.


Used PsTools and entered the proxy details in IE for computers system context following Article ID: 214506, it did not make any difference. 


Connection to LiveUpdate server was not going the specified proxy server and failing to run the task

LiveUpdate process was considering configuration from first server(Name="10.xx.xx.xx") and update of proxy config is going to seconder server(Name="SERVER_NAME").

Contact support to get a tool for deleting the server name with incorrect details.
