Have you checked other directories to ensure that another .htaccess file does not exist? That error is telling me that there is password protection somewhere and it’s trying to locate that file, but since it’s not found, it’s logging the error.

As far as the .htaccess file you posted, the following line shouldn’t be required and isn’t part of the normal WordPress .htaccess:

RedirectMatch Permanent wp-admin/install(-helper)?.php /


That specific error is stating that /etc/apache2/.phpmyadmin.htpasswd does not exist.

Inside your .htaccess file, are you referencing that file? If so, you’ll need to make sure it exists as any problems with your .htaccess file may cause issues elsewhere since WordPress relies on it heavily.
