@MSD2 From the error message it appears there is some issue with your proxy configuration within Studio. Could you please review the proxy setting in Studio following below options-
@MSD2: Could you please confirm if you are using proxy server and if yes, then enter your proxy server detail in the setting and try publishing.
@MSD2 Could you please confirm the error message you are getting while publishing project. Are you able to validate the project from Studio project configuration ? Do you get publish error for all the projects or some particular projects?
