 404 errors don’t impact your site’s ranking in Google, and you can safely ignore them.

The HTTP 404 Not Found Error means that the webpage you were trying to reach could not be found on the server. It is a Client-side Error which means that either the page has been removed or moved and the URL was not changed accordingly, or that you typed in the URL incorrectly.

If you have more number of 404 Error pages then it will definitely affect your website performance, when search engines try to crawl your website, if you have more number of 404 pages then the unwanted redirects will happen.

According to my thought this error Impact on SEO result and but according to 2015 update it over now because its based on client side error and thats means the page which you want to access it don't existing here.

No, Your website will be affected.

None of visitors want to see 404 page, If they go to any 404 page then they will get frustrated and never come again to your site. (I know some of users do this)

404 errors don't have direct impact on SEO but as User experience is the major part of SEO the reason why for better user experience and to pass the link juice to the newly created pages it is better to re-direct them to the appropriate relevant pages.

A 404 Not Found Error can mean big trouble for an online store and it’s customers. Sales and customer satisfaction will drop. It is lose-lose situation in Ecommerce. Now, because I know you all are winners, we aren’t going to lose out with this pesky 404 Page Not Found Error. I’ll explain the Error and show you how to fix it for your Online Store. The next time you see this error, you’ll have the knowledge needed to fix the error fast and continue to make sales.

try the web page by pressing F5, clicking the refresh/reload button, or trying the URL from the address bar again.

The 404 Not Found error might appear for several reasons even though no real issue exists, so sometimes a simple refresh will often load the page you were looking for.
 
Check for errors in the URL. Often times the 404 Not Found error appears because the URL was typed wrong or the link that was clicked on points to the wrong URL.
 
Move up one directory level at a time in the URL until you find something.

For example, if www.web.com/a/b/c.htm gave you the 404 Not Found error, move up to www.web.com/a/b/. If you get nothing here (or an error), move up to www.web.com/a/. This should lead you toward what you're looking for or at least confirm that it's no longer available.

Tip: If you have moved all the way up to the website's homepage, try to run a search for the information you're looking for. If the site doesn't have a search function, try navigating to the page you want using category links to dig deeper into the site.
 
Search for the page at a popular search engine. It's possible that you simply have the entirely wrong URL in which case a quick Google or Bing search should get you where you want to go.

If you do find the page you were after, update your bookmark or favorite to avoid the HTTP 404 error in the future.
 
Clear your browser's cache if you have any indication that the 404 Not Found message might just be yours. For example, if you can reach the URL from your phone but not from your tablet, clearing the cache on your tablet's browser might help.

You might also consider clearing your browser's cookies, or at least the one(s) involved with the website in question, if clearing the cache didn't work.
 
Change the DNS servers used by your computer but usually only if an entire website is giving you a 404 error, especially if the website is available to those on other networks (e.g. your mobile phone network or a friend in another city).

404's on an entire website isn't particularly common unless your ISP or government filters/censors websites. No matter the reason, if it does happen, giving another set of DNS servers a try is a good step to take. See my Public DNS Servers List for some alternatives and instructions on doing this.
 
Finally, if all else fails, contact the website directly. If they've removed the page you're after then the 404 error is completely legitimate and they should be able to tell you that. If they've moved the page, and are generating 404's instead of redirecting visitors to the new page, they'll be happy to hear from you so they can go fix it.

Technically, an Error 404 is a client-side error, implying that the error is your mistake, either because you typed the URL incorrectly or the page has been moved or removed from the webiste and you should have known.
Another posibility is if a website has moved a page or resource but did so without  redirecting the old URL to the new one. When that happens, you'll receive a 404 error instead of being automatically routed to the new page.
