On my system, man(1) is not present, but a manpage was.  M-x man RET
pastebinint RET claimed that the manPAGE was missing, when actually
man(1) is what was missing.  M-x woman RET pastebinint RET works.

"M-x man" works by invoking man(1), so it cannot work without one
installed.  "M-x woman" (WO == without) does not need man(1),
therefore it still works.

So this is expected.  If you don't have man(1) installed, you should
use WoMan to begin with.
