I was going to suggest an edit on this question, but I don't see an edit button anywhere. I tried going to it directly, and I just get a "Page Not Found" error. It also seems to happen on this question and this question too. I don't have edit privileges, but why can't I at least suggest one?

Edit: All those have been edited by someone else now, and now I can edit them all. I'm still wondering why that happened, but I can't find more examples.

You cannot submit a suggested edit if another suggested edit is already pending on that post. The initial suggestion must be approved or rejected before the new suggestion can be made. All three of the examples you've shown all include a suggested edit from another user, so the likely scenario is that you attempted to suggest an edit while someone else was already doing so.
