Do you mean the links are not appearing or the links are not working?
In other words /news/newsletter/2012 is redirected back to /news/newsletter/
This is not an ACF issue. This is something else. I have no idea how links to urls based on a repeater was supposed to work on the site but this is not something that happens without quite a bit of work adding custom permalinks.
