The links are generated by your mirror server. This mirror server does
not see requests for /pub/software but for /mirror/pub/software, and
thus generates what are, from its perspective, correct links.

You probably though that ProxyPassReverse would fix that, but it
doesn't, as only redirects are rewritten, not the content.

You either need to use something that rewrites the content generate by
your mirror server (but this is complicated for a newbie) or
alternatively also proxy /mirror to your mirror server.  Like this:

<Location /mirror>
Order deny,allow
              Allow from
              Deny from all
              ProxyPass               http://localhost:8080/mirror/
              ProxyPassReverse        http://localhost:8080/mirror/
