Missing edit link?

I was trying to edit a post on SO, which was very badly formatted. After I submitted the edit, I was redirected to the 404 page. Thinking that the owner must have removed the post while I was editing, I checked in the new queue and still was able to see the post.

The edit link was missing.

Is this because there were close votes or flags on the question?

    If the edit link was missing it means that there were pending edits.

There were pending edits and you did not have enough rep to approve or reject it.
