Description Daniel Miranda 2017-07-30 20:59:42 EDT
Description of problem:

According to the apt-cacher-ng documentation:

> Except from .conf files, most files listed above can be moved to another "support" directory and the daemon will look for them therein if they are not present in the primary configuration directory. This feature is intended to help keeping pure configuration data and mostly static data in different locations. The directory path is specified at build time and can be overriden with the SupportDir directive (and if used, this should be set as early as possible).

Therefore, it is not necessary to manually ship symlinks to the support dir in /etc, yet the Fedora package does just that.

The symlinks should be removed, and the configuration should rely on the fallback behavior as Debian ships it.
