The alternatives (and as a consequence the symlinks, the modprobe files
etc) are set up by the nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative maintainer
scripts. If you still have the apt logs, could you please check if
there was any error when installing/upgrading that package?

Also to fix it please try:

dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-legacy-304xx-alternative

Kind regards,
