Kudos for checking the archives first. Many posters with this question do
not, and it is likely one of the most common questions asked.

My system doesn't have one, either - it probably just doesn't exist by

According to the apt.conf man page, it belongs at /etc/apt/apt.conf. Create
this file and add the relevant lines per the solutions you found.
