Troubleshooting inability to bring up admin web pages

Gnomad
Hi all, sorry I haven't properly visited in about a year - in all honesty my Shield has been fairly stable (router mode on v8.3.1), except for the odd failure to start up again correctly after a weekly update, which has always been easily fixed with a reboot.

However, a few months back I noticed that I was no longer able to access the admin interface.  I was not overly worried because I can still access it via Console, SSH and SCP fine; but today I am trying to sort it out..  Any tips for things to look at?

PS: Thank you all for the updates since - particularly @roadrunnere42, @user8446 and @wisiwyg - I've progressively collated them all with comments which I'll shortly apply to our GitHub repository.  Also looking forward to your v8.3.4 and 8.3.5 updates @roadrunnere42!

The issue bringing up the admin interface turned out to be a corrupted uci config file preventing the web server starting up:  /etc/config/uhttpd
Possibly unrelated, but this might actually have been caused by problems introduced way back with the original 1.51 SP1 code in
/etc/itus/ituswebfilter.sh
You will find a couple of instances of this comment missing a leading # character:
Add blacklist to dnsmasq
My admin interface came back again after restoring an old /etc/config/uhttpd and running
sh /etc/itus/ituswebfilter.sh
The fix has been committed to the GitHub repo, along with a bunch of others I've collated from @roadrunnere42, @user8446 and @wisiwyg along the way.  Hope this helps anyone else with a similar issue.
