      After reset, you need to do all steps again. Download insider app, use proxy to enroll and check for updates.

      I guess, you should contact Microsoft support about this issue.

      If it says that then using proxy, you are not following the guide correctly.
      If after you disable proxy, then you need to sign up for https://insider.windows.com first.

      You can always use recovery tool to flash fresh WP8.1 and start update again.
