Removing -noupnp should only fix it if it was a firewall problem where
port 6544 was blocked.  Do you have a firewall running on your Buster

In your case, is the 404 error from getting pages from mythweb, or do
you get a mythweb page with a 404 error displayed inside it where the
status fetch from port 6544 failed?  Do other mythweb pages load
properly?  Does this URL work:
