Because it would appear that it tries to access
while in fact there is an intermediate symlink:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 37 déc. 26 21:50 /var/lib/roundcube/plugins/jqueryui -> /usr/share/roundcube/plugins/jqueryui
Therefore, the above symlink works.

The correct directory has always been /var/lib/roundcube but we
previously arranged so that /usr/share/roundcube would work too but it
was getting quite complicated. I am unsure when we removed the symlinks
From /usr/share/roundcube to /var/lib/roundcube. I would say this was

That's quite surprising because it is the job of dpkg to work with those
symlinks. I will try to find which version had symlinks in the old way
and test an upgrade.
