AMP Page URL is Not Found (4XX)

The URL in question refers to an AMP page that results in a Not Found (4XX) error.

To solve the issue, ensure the <link rel="amphtml"> element on the canonical page points to the appropriate AMP version, and verify this page is granting a 200 status code, making it accessible to both search engines and users.
