Please, verify the URL in the browser as you access this page. There is a condition in Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.WebAdminPageBase class of that throws this exception is onload method:

if (!WebAdminPageBase.IsLayoutFolderInTheWeb(this.Web.ServerRelativeUrl))
        throw new FileNotFoundException();

The IsLayoutFolderInTheWeb method is defined as:

public static bool IsLayoutFolderInTheWeb(string strServerRelativeWebUrl)
  string str = SPHttpUtility.UrlPathDecode(SPUtility.OriginalServerRelativeRequestUrl, false).ToLower();
  int length = str.IndexOf("/_layouts/");
  return length > 0 && strServerRelativeWebUrl.ToLower() == str.Substring(0, length) || length == 0 && strServerRelativeWebUrl == "/";
