The SEE ALSO section of install(1) man page contains a broken URL:

Full documentation at: <https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/install>

The URL returns:

404 - Page Not Found

I suspect it is caused by the build-time rename ginstall -> install. If one
substitutes 'install' by 'ginstall' in the above URL, then it redirects to the
following URL:

https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/ginstall-invocation.html#ginstall-invocation

... which does not work either. It should be redirected to the following URL
instead:

https://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/manual/html_node/install-invocation.html#install-invocation

Unfortunately, I do not know where the redirections are maintained. This was
originally reported in Red Hat Bugzilla:

Nice catch!
I've fixed this in the .htaccess file in coreutils' web-cvs repo.
Marking this as done.

Have a nice day,
