Two problems with this:

1. Even on 16.04 root folder populates with all downloaded/installed debs
2. I have aptly repo on ubuntu 14.04 and aptly cache gets deleted after 30 days 
because of the /etc/cron.daily/apt cron job that has following lines:

    Cache="/var/cache/apt/archives/"
    eval $(apt-config shell Cache Dir::Cache::archives/d)

    # sanity check
    if [ -z "$Cache" ]; then  <------ This is not Empty bc above returns 
Cache='/'
        echo "empty Dir::Cache::archives, exiting"
        exit
    fi

    # check age
    if [ ! $MaxAge -eq 0 ] && [ ! $MinAge -eq 0 ]; then
        debug_echo "aged: ctime <$MaxAge and mtime <$MaxAge and ctime>$MinAge 
and mtime>$MinAge"
        find $Cache -name "*.deb"  \( -mtime +$MaxAge -and -ctime +$MaxAge \) 
-and -not \( -mtime -$MinAge -or -ctime -$MinAge \) -print0 | xargs -r -0 rm -f
    elif [ ! $MaxAge -eq 0 ]; then
        debug_echo "aged: ctime <$MaxAge and mtime <$MaxAge only"
        find $Cache -name "*.deb"  -ctime +$MaxAge -and -mtime +$MaxAge -print0 
| xargs -r -0 rm -f
    else
        debug_echo "skip aging since MaxAge is 0"
    fi


apt-config shell Cache Dir::Cache::archives/d returns
Cache='/'

So any deb files on the system, no matter where get deleted after 30
days!

I haven't changed Cache Dir::Cache::archives, so I suppose this is the
default.

Title:
  An empty Dir::Cache::archives is treated incorrectly and even removes
  all files in the root folder
