How are you doing it in /etc/environment? And how is the process
calling wget and docker getting initiated? The data in
/etc/environment should be set if the process is in a PAM aware
environment, but I would expect that there may be ways where you could
not get it set. The other place to put it would be in
/etc/profile.d/proxy.sh and /etc/profile.d/proxy.<fill in here> but
that would require also the shells sourcing those files not to clear
out their environment variables or to make sure they  source
/etc/profile.d when starting up.
