If you have installed the minetest-server package, then the mods go in /var/games/minetest-server/.minetest/mods/

At Debian it is in the home-directory:

~/.minetest/
if you have no mods manually installed, you must create the "mods" dir there yourself.
(per apt installed mods are in the directory "/usr/share/games/minetest/mods/" instead of "/home/YOURNAME/.minetest/mods/")

Mods should be installed into the user(/mods) directory. Create the mods directory manually if Minetest did not do that on first start.
