I have created a new site collection based on a template (using c#) and everything goes great with one exception. I am unable to go to 'site settings' -> 'Page layouts and site templates'. After checking the correlation id the issue is

"List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user."

What list is it looking for? How can I change the list that is being pointed to?

I checked that there is a valid pagelayouts list but maybe the GUID doesn't match.

When template was applied to the site collection all page layouts received invalid content types and were pending approval. After correcting this everything works.
