Category paging urls content rendered as blank page

Problem: Category paging urls content rendered as blank page

Steps:

  1. Open any category url tech - Demo
    You can see content in this category

  2. Copy its paging url tech - Demo

  3. Open this paging url you will find blank page

I am on latest version of discourse and the same issue is also happening with my discourse instance but interestingly it is working fine on meta.discourse.org

Try it with JavaScript disabled and see what happens.

Reminder: those links are for crawlers, not humans.

Yes I have also tried it on lynx text browser and the content on those links rendering as blank

This loads fine for me:

https://meta.discourse.org/c/support/l/latest?category_id=6&page=1
https://meta.discourse.org/c/support/l/latest?category_id=6&page=2

I have JavaScript disabled in Firefox and clicking these links works fine:

Ohk I got it, this is only happening when category has less number of topics which does not require paging

For ex: if we access praise category praise - Discourse Meta

And then click on next page ->
a blank page gets rendered

Ideally there should not be any paging link in this case
