Start LibreOffice. Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced. Click 'Open Expert Configuration'. Search for term GreekCharStyle. Double-click the found item. In that dialog click on Help button.

The text on the 404-page is:

    The page does not exist and must be created.

    The page exists, but the Help ID is wrong or missing.

Use the Module, Contents, Index and Search selectors to find the right page.

The following data could be helpful in locating the error:

Help ID: cui/ui/aboutconfigvaluedialog/dialog-action_area1

Hence when the user clicks Help in the dialog you mentioned, this page will be displayed.
