Not getting correct report from Webcheck

I am trying to run webcheck to find broken links for one of the websites but I am seeing 404 message for this URL. I am pretty sure that this is a valid URL and I am able to see the page when I hit it in the browser. Also, I am able to see other crawler tools able to crawl this site and generating reports. So, I am not sure why I am not able to get the report from Webcheck tool. can you please help on this?

I am attaching the version details, command that I ran and the report generated. Please help to identify the issue here. Thanks in advance.

Webcheck version : webcheck-1.10.4

Command Ran & the output:

$ python -o /tmp/myreport
