    This is a common error suggesting that you are missing the ProfileService.svc file in IIS root folder.

    You can just ignore related error message (e.g. in Event Viewer) if everything works fine in your farm, but here are a few options to fix this issue:
    1 Stop and then restart User Profile Service and User Profile Synchronization Service so that SharePoint can recreate the endpoint listener in IIS.

    2 If you do not need User Profile Synchronization Service or the service is missing, you can manually create the ProfileService.svc file under IIS root folder.
    The default file path for SharePoint Server 2019 is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\16.0\WebServices\Profile
    You can create a copy of another svc file in the folder (e.g. ProfilePropertyService.svc), rename it to “ProfileService.svc” and then replace the content with:

    <%@ServiceHost 
      Language="c#" 
    
      Service="Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfilePropertyService, Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles, Version=16.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" 
      Factory="Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles.ProfilePropertyServiceHostFactory, Microsoft.Office.Server.UserProfiles, Version=16.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" 
    %>
    

    References:
    Missing ProfileService.svc.
    Event ID 3: Error “/ProfileService.svc does not exist.” (AD Profile Import).
