Still having same error… Tried suggested but nothing’s changed…

On getting 404 error

Do you know did you disabled XML-RPC on your Droplet? JetPack requires XML-RPC functionality to work.

If you are not sure, you can start from checking do you have dependencies installed on Droplet :

  1. sudo apt-get install php-xml php-xmlrpc

It will require you to restart apache (or in nginx in case you use it):

  1. sudo systemctl restart apache2

In nginx case :

  1. sudo systemctl restart nginx

Try again and see if it solved the problem.
