MM believes your 9/Everything/ directory is up-to-date, including all
file contents referred to in there, but the database only tracks your
content by directory, not by files in those directories.  A user would
get directed to this (incorrect) URL from MM, and your server would be
expected to return the "file not found" message.

MM knows that there is no such directory 9/Everything/x86_94, so it
expects you're asking for a file, and lets your side handle the "file
not found".
