user access – Why does edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category return “You need a higher level of permission.”

Question

The latest version of 5.8.2 is deployed. The user logged in has administrator capabilities.
It seems that “Link Categories” are hidden for installs greater than 3.5 – https://codex.wordpress.org/Links_Link_Categories_Screen

Although hidden, outputting the values of the global variable $submenu, it returns a URL i.e. wp-admin/edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category.

print_rgenerates the following:

[15] => Array
                (
                    [0] => Link Categories
                    [1] => manage_categories
                    [2] => edit-tags.php?taxonomy=link_category
                )

        )

When attempting to access the URI, it displays You need a higher level of permission. Sorry, you are not allowed to manage terms in this taxonomy.

  • Why is the message displayed?
  • Why is the URI returned when calling the global variable $submenu?
  • Is it still a valid option and if yes, other what scenarios and how would it be accessible?
