Comment (by duncan):

 At some point in that process you must have created a `~/.cabal/config`
 file (but one that does not specify any servers). When the file is missing
 completely then indeed `cabal update` will create a `~/.cabal/config`
 containing all defaults.

 Try this:
 $ rm ~/.cabal/config
 $ cabal update
