Weird privilege errors on Ubuntu 20.04

Out of curiosity, I launched a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 AWS instance. Its file
system structure matches the one you have. My installation is upgraded
originally from 16.04 to 18.04 to 20.04. Therefore, I also checked a fresh
Ubuntu 16.04. Its file system structure matches mine. 

Hence, it looks like the difference in our file system structures is
explained by my upgrade path.

Still not sure if it's relevant to the Nginx issue I'm experiencing, though
