I cannot reproduce this: when I follow those 2 references, I land on
the definition of 'nth'.  I tried Emacs 26.0.90 and the current
release branch, and the Info files produced both for 26.0.90 and the
current branch.

Is it possible that the Info files you have installed have DOS CR-LF
EOLs?  (If they do, you will see it in the mode line, where the EOL
format indicator is shown.)  If so, they were produced incorrectly,
and to fix them, you need to convert them to Unix EOL format.

Emacs was changed to adapt to how the latest Texinfo versions produce
Info files on MS-Windows.  Maybe your Info files were produced by an
old version of makeinfo, and that no longer fits what Emacs expects.
