There is no direct way to do this. There are multiple of ways to
do this indirectly though, including:

- configure a backend which returns a non-cacheable response and
triggers appropriate actions;

- configure a non-responding backend and error_page 502 to return
a response and trigger appropriate processing.

Alternatively, in some cases it might be more convenient to use
proxy_store instead of proxy_cache, and then work with responses
on the file system - with try_files and so on.
