I am trying to disable the minimal download strategy but the feature is not available even though the redirection persists.

This site is a users Blog site. The Blog link from the MySite redirects here: Blog/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/default.aspx

MDS is disabled at the top-level site. When I execute the following command:

Disable-SPFeature -identity "87294c72-f260-42f3-a41b-981a2ffce37a" -URL <weburl>/personal/<userid>/Blog

I get the following:

Disable-SPFeature : Feature '87294c72-f260-42f3-a41b-981a2ffce37a' is not activated at this scope.

$web = Get-SPWeb <site>
$web.EnableMinimalDownload = $false
