There is the error log entry that you kept promising us didn't exist. 
You must be looking in the wrong error log.

The entry tells us that you do not have "Options Indexes" set on the
directory in question.

Looking at the VirtualHost config you posted above, I note that it
looks like a name-based virtual host, but there is no ServerName
directive.  So I suspect that this <VirtualHost> block is not being
used at all.  This would explain why the configurations contained in
it have no effect, and also why the errors are getting sent to a
different log file.

So you need to start by figuring out which <VirtualHost> block (if
any) is actually serving the request, and adjust the configuration in
that block.
