Never mind, it was my fault. I was trying to create a link, and never remember the right order: ln -s name folder or ln -s folder name , and this is how I created the broken link.
I create links because I have the applications folders out of the web2py/applications to make it easier to manage the web2py update process in case of new version, and thus, I create a link for every new application.
