Could you check if the setup.ini.sig file is just not stored to disk and

Is there a new requirement that a local repository has to have a
signature file?  And does it have to be setup.ini.sig (rather than,
for example, setup.bz2.sig)?

You can always tell it to not check the signature (--no-verify / -X),
but if the directory you set it upon looks like a mirror and has a setup
file, then it will by default want to check the signature (belonging to
the actual suffix used: .xz, .bz2 and lastly .ini).

I maintain my own small repository at a remote site and mirror it on my local machine. It contains, for each architecture, setup.ini, setup.xz, and setup.xz.sig. Installation from the remote site works fine. If I try to install from my local mirror, setup complains that it can't find setup.ini.sig. I can install from the local mirror only if I add setup.ini.sig.
