Permalink change made author archive vanished

I changed my WordPress blog URL from:

into first,

and then after many days,

But now seen that, they are taking the author archive link to a dead end (404). Where the default author archive link is: /?author=1, with any of these permalinks, the author archive’s link becomes /author/1. But the URL is taking me to a 404. I’ve tested in my local dev environment too, can’t get what’s the exact URL which can give me the author archive.

The author archive link, that’s in my theme is:

<a href="<?php echo get_author_posts_url( false, $authordata->ID, $authordata->user_nicename ); ?>">
   <?php the_author(); ?>

Is that a bug of WordPress or I’m doing something wrong?
